Re: Breast feeding only and started my menstrual cycle alrea
Don't worry. Your supply won't vanish simply because you got your period back. Some moms will experience a temporary dip in supply around the time of their periods, but provided they nurse on demand and don't supplement, their supplies jumps right back up after their periods are over. Now, this can make things a little more complicated for a working mom. If you're one of those women who has a dip in supply during menstruation, life is easiest if you're home with your baby because the baby will make up for the temporary supply dip by nursing more frequently and draining the breast more completely- and it's that frequent stimulation which cues the body to bring supply back up. So if you have a dip in supply and if you notice that you're getting less milk at each pump session, it may be necessary for you to pump more frequently during the day in order to get your supply to bounce back. If you can't fit the pump sessions into the workday, you'd have to fit them in during your commute or after feedings when you're home with the baby.
All that being said, are you sure this is your period? It's early to have it back- I'd have to wonder if it is perhaps a last gasp of your lochia (postpartum discharge) or perhaps related to some form of hormonal contraception (if you're using that).
