    Default sudden decrease hunger increase

    I have recently noticed a sudden decrease in my supply of milk. Normally a pumping session yields 5-6 oz and now struggling to get 3 or 4. Baby seems fussy when nursing like she's not getting enough fast enough. I also have notice MY appetite has recently increased drastically. Could the two be related? Do I need to eat more calories, is this why my supply could be down? I am also just finishing a 5 day antibiotic round of azrithromyacin (Z-pacK) - could this affect supply? Going to start Fenugreek supplement again as I respond to it well.. just wondering if anyone has any idea what this could be about?

    How old is your baby? Did you get your period back yet? Could you be pregnant? I have a decrease when I ovulate and for the 2 days before I get my period.
