Re: Boobs floppy now. Low milk supply?
What you're experiencing is absolutely normal. Most moms start out making too much milk- it's nature's way of ensuring that the babies get fed while they master the art of nursing. When a mom is making too much milk, she's likely to feel full or engorged a lot of the time, to leak a lot, and to be able to pump a lot of milk (if she is pumping). But making too much milk isn't something a mom wants to do long term- it's a waste of energy, it puts the mom at increased risk for plugged ducts and mastitis, and making too much milk can mean fast letdowns which can make it difficult for the baby to nurse. So after a while, supply adjusts to meet dmand very precisely, without a lot of extra milk being made. Once that adjustment takes place, it's normal for a mom to rarely if ever feel full, to leak less or not at all, to feel weaker letdown sensation or no letdown sensation at all, to need to use 2 breasts at a feeding even if she's only been nursing on one at a time, and to see her pump output decline (if she's pumping). Her baby may be fussy when this adjustment takes place, because the baby has to get used to a new, more assertive style of nursing.
There is nothing you need to be doing right now aside from nursing on demand and not supplementing. That is the best way to maintain supply. And even if you do get the stomach flu, it doesn't mean the end of nursing: milk supply is designed to be flexible, and to respond to increased demand.
