    That's rough, but you have to feed the LO no matter what. Is there any way you could spend a few days to relax and get back on track with the BF'ing? Do you have any vacation days or sick days you could take to just catch up on some sleep and nursing the baby? I would definately try and unwind as much as possible, I know that helped me a LOT when my supply took a huge dip.

    Hang in there momma!!

    Babygurl you mentioned that you are spotting/bleeding. Are you on BC? Did you get your pd back? I am not on BC, but sometimes when I first get my pd. I notice a dip in my supply.

    I drink the tea and take Blessed Thistle and Fenugreek. Another thing I do is I make sure that there isn't even one stream of milk coming out of my breast when I stop, and I always pump for about 10-15 minutes, because I usually have a second let-down around 9 minutes. I used to pump for 10, but I found that the extra time allows the pump to get those extra few ounces from the second let-down.

    Good luck, and keep on doing your best! That is all anyone can ask.
