Re: How long
My LC told me that it usually takes 2x as long to regain supply as it does to lose it, but I am not sure I'd believe that unquestioningly. With most things related to breastfeeding, the answer is different for every mom.
Are you nursing and upping, or just pumping? And if you're just pumping, what make/model of pump are you using and how often are you using it? Often moms get really discouraged by lack of success with the pump, and the problem is often that they are using a machine which is inadequate for their needs.
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
