Re: VERY worry about my milk supply
As long as your younger baby is having sufficient wet and poopy diapers, you are producing enough. What you're experiencing may well be the normal adjustment that makes supply match demand very precisely, without a lot of milk left over to give you that full feeling. This adjustment happens at a different time for all moms. Some moms notice a rapid adjustment. But for moms with persistent oversupply, the adjustment may take months. The following are NOT reliable signs of low supply:
- not feeling full
- not leaking
- needing to use two breasts per feeding after using only one for a long time
- diminished pump output
- fussy baby
- baby increases feeding frequency
- baby increases night waking
However, the fact that this is all coinciding with you starting a new diet and exercise regime probably means that this is an excellent time to be cautious. Pay a little more attention to your younger baby's diaper output. Make sure that your exercise bra is a proper fit, not tight or binding!
I wouldn't freak out, though.
