Re: Supply Issues?
You came to the right place for information about breastfeeding your baby.
It is very usual for a baby to initiate extra feedings, to be a bit more fussy, to want to nurse for a longer duration ,at this age,
because she now has desire for the next change in breastmilk composition.
Some times when a mother doesn't realize this increase in frequency/duration is normal and expected, she believes her supply is at fault.
I nursed my children without a schedule and what worked for me was letting the baby nurse multiple times a day, closer to 8 to 10 times per day.
Your supply might have been temporarily affected by a busy baby who missed a feeding here or there, or sometimes there is a temporary dip due to starting a hormone birth control.
I say these dips are temporary because as long as you keep up the frequency and let the baby decide if she wants both sides, your supply will rebound quickly.
