Can you 'sponteasouly' dry-up? People say I'm pregnant (I'm not) - just supply dropped last week and plumeted over the weekend.
I had bronchitis and have been on anitbiotics since Tuesday. I drink A TON (150oz) of water a day, which include 36oz of mothers milk tea.
Question #1: can this happen?
Question #2: can I stop it??
My LO will be 7 months next week. He eats 6x/day - currently I have weaned 2 sessions (weaned 1 session week of 2/4, anoher week of 2/11). Been gaining perfect and thriving!! And other than the ongoing day-care colds, he's healthy! He is in daycare and gets 3 bottles, and i nurse at wake-up, 5:30pm, and 7:30pm bedtime. (i pump 1x/day at work) Last week, I noticed my supply drop a bit - my breasts were feeling more empty and i was pumping about 1-2oz less during my 1 pumping session. I got bronchitis last week and have been on anitbiotics since Tuesday. I drink a ton of water (approx 120+oz/day plus 2-16ozcups of mothers milk tea). Then over the weekend, i felt a significant decrease. I had planned on weaning 2 more sessions next week, and just keeping bed-time and wake-up. (my 2 favorite times a day!)
