Hello ladies. My little man is 10 months old. Recently I've noticed a dip in my supply that typically happens directly after ovulation and lasting through until after my period. Recently, that dip has been significant. I was pumping about 8-10oz a day recently, but now it's dropped to 4! Which is only enough for one of his bottles (I send two 4-oz bottles to daycare). We nurse morning and evening, and baby boy sleeps through the night.
I'm currently 5dpo, and don't want to take fenugreek or mother's milk tea, as I'm not sure it's completely safe while TTC or in early pregnancy. Are there any other options? I'm going to make lactation cookies tonight, and I started on a calcium/magnesium/zinc supplement, which I've read can help. I drink a lot of water.
I don't think I can fit another pumping session in during the day at work. The only time I could fit one in would be before I go to bed, around 10pm.
Any suggestions or advice for me? I'd really appreciate it.
