My LO is 3 months old (well, he will be on Jan. 3). I've had a really good supply up until now. He nurses about every 3 hours, with one longer 94-5 hour) stretch at night. He normally cluster feeds the last hour or so before bed.
A few days ago, he began nursing every hour or so doring the night, and more frequently during the day. His cluster feeding has gone from 1 hour to 2 or more hours.
I chalked this up to a growth spurt.
However, he spaced his feedings out more last night, and in between I noticed that my breasts did not get really FULL like they used to.
He's still feeding more frequently today (day 3 of this), and my breasts still don't have that very full feeling.
Add to that I'm cranky, tired, backache, and craving chocolate.
Could my milk supply be diminishing due to AF getting ready to return? Or is this just the 3 month growth spurt?
