Re: sudden decrease in milk supply
The pill certainly could be at fault for the decrease in supply. If so, your supply should bounce back to adequate levels provided you are nursing on demand, or that you are willing to pump more often and for longer periods until you get your supply up where it needs to be.
Are you exclusively pumping, combining nursing and pumping, or mostly nursing and just pumping once in a while?
ETA: Common reasons for decrease in supply include:
- return of menstrual cycle
- normal adjustment of milk supply to meet baby's needs very precisely, without a lot of extra left over
- skipping feedings
- trying to stretch intervals between feedings
- pump wearing out
