    Default What is Going On????

    Hello ladies. I noticed today that my supply is very low. I don't know what is going on. I usually pump in the morning after I put DS down for a nap and I get about 4-6 oz. Today I barely got 1 0z. I have never had any problems with a low supply before. I haven't really done anything different. I just tried pumping again and less than 1/2 oz. AF recently returned. Could that have anything to do with it. Any suggestions to get my milk back up. Thanks for listening. I am getting a little nervous about not producing enough for DS.

    This is from breastfeeding essentials
    "Some women do notice a temporary drop in milk supply in the days just prior to a period and for a few days into one. This is due to hormonal fluctuations. Once the period begins and hormone levels begin to return to normal, the milk supply will boost back up again. Most babies can compensate well for this temporary drop in supply with more frequent nursing."
