My supply is dwindling due to the recent onset of menstruation (currently Day 3). Used to be able to pump 10-12 oz at work and now I am just barely getting 8oz after two 25 min. pumpings. My son is nearly 17months and attends FT daycare so I am worried about sending him in with only 8oz (or even less) to drink during the day (along with his meals/snack).
Do you know if this is enough liquid for him from 7-5 at 37 lbs./37inches?? Also, is it safe to add an oz. or so of filtered water to the breastmilk that I send in with him to stretch it out? (Not sure if that "messes" up the milk.)
I am drinking Mother's Milk tea, taking Cal/Mag and eating oatmeal but it doesn't seem to be helping (but maybe this only works as a more long term solution . . .)
