    Default blockfeeding working too well!

    i've been blockfeeding in four hour blocks for a little over a month now and it really has worked well to bring my supply down....but if i so much as forget which side or forget the hours once i'm engorged and have OALD....anyway this week we went on a trip for four days and my baby was not nursing as much as usual and then slept through the night twice....the day we came home he was very sick and not nursing well either and now i feel like i have no milk...could my supply drop that fast??? i don't feel full in the mornings, my breasts feel very soft and my baby gets very frusterated trying to get it to let down and doesn't seem to be swallowing very often...could this be blockfeeding or is it the few days with lessened nursing?? what should i do???

    How old is your DC?

    Some changes in breasts are normal as time goes by.
