My son will be 16 weeks old this Sunday, and I have been back at work for nearly 10 weeks.
Until yesterday, my supply has been consistent. I pump 3x/day while at work, and typically take home between 14-17oz for the next day. He has on average 13-15oz while I'm at work, so thankfully I have a little extra in the fridge. Yesterday and today I needed to add an extra pumping session to barely get enough to take home - yesterday I only produced 12oz, and today, only 11oz.
I am beginning to get a little concerned...
When I am home, I nurse him twice in the evening, once in the middle of the night, and twice in the morning before work.
I also take 2 fenugreek pills each morning, and have oatmeal with a teaspoon of brewer's yeast and a teaspoon of flax. I generally eat healthy, and drink plenty of water.
Hopefully this is just a phase, and I'll go back to producing the normal amount of milk each day. But, is this normal to see a decrease in supply at 16 weeks? Is there anything else I can do to increase my supply?
