I was wondering if anyone else is running into this problem. I started getting my period again about 2 months ago. All last week my supply was very low..having a hard time with let down and not pumping as much. This seemed to happen the previous month also and then I ended up getting my period. Well...again I started menstruating this morning...SURPRISE! Has anyone else had this happen to them...supply dropping before getting their period? Someone told me I wasn't even going to get it while I was breastfeeding. Is this normal and is there anything I can do to keep my supply up during this time??
Any feedback would be great. I"m worried that if my supply is low now that eventually it will stay low because of the rule of supply and demand. I don't want my body to adjust to this level of milk. I"m trying to keep the pump on an extra 5 minutes each breast even though I"m not getting any more milk coming out. Is this right??
Thanks for ANY advice.
