    Default Ideas for low supply from pumping?

    Wow! So good to find this site! It has given me relief already!...my LO is 6 1/2 months, and my supply is running low as well...this week I've pumped 11 oz. one day, 10 oz. the next (during a FULL day at work) and I pump about 3 - 4 times a day! I'm wondering if my period has anything to do with it as well....it came today. I've been drinking the Mothers Milk tea, tons of water and trying to snack on different things as well. Any other suggestions / ideas?

    Very, very possible. A lot of moms find their supplies dip around their period. Just keep nursing/pumping as often as you can, and it should recover in a few days.
