Re: Milk production and periods
A lot of mamas do see a temporary supply dip right around the time of their period each month. It's different for everyone, but for me it was usually the first 2-3 days of my period. If you are nursing directly it shouldn't be much of a problem, you may just notice baby wants to nurse more frequently or for longer periods. Possibly s/he might get fussy at the breast because the milk is slower or it tastes a little different, but again it usually only lasts a few days. If you are pumping it might be more of a problem if you are trying to keep up with baby's intake at day care. I found eating oatmeal on those mornings really helped give me a supply boost. There are also herbal teas or supplements you could take, but I never used any of those so I'm no help there. Try the oatmeal and see if it works for you, though. It seems to be one of those things that works for most women who just need a temporary supply boost.
