I'm under a lot of stress splitting up with xp and suddenly my boobs don't feel full and dd is constantly hungry. How can I increase supply?

How old is your dd Scaryfairy? Boobs often do feel fuller after about the first 4-6 weeks.

Stress won't affect your actual supply although the letdown can be slower if you are under a lot of stress.

The main thing is just to respond to your dd's cues and feed as often as she requires it.

She's 5 months seemed to just have finished 4 month growth spurt but now she crying everytime she goes on and thrashing about like she's not getting anything, she's never done this before. My boobs don't feel full even in the morning.

So sorry to hear that you are splitting up and feeling stressed.

Boobs not feeling full is perfectly normal. There is some information here to tell you if she is getting enough milk and some information here on increasing low supply.

As for the thrashing, is she teething?
