    Same thing here. Got my period when my EBF'd twins were 6 months old and notice a big supply drop every month for about three days or so. Such a drag...

    I just started back on my period when my son was 9 months old, slowly, then now regularly it seems. I also notice a significant drop in my supply, an above poster mentioned that it seemed like milk was there but doesn't want to let down? I experience this where my DS will nurse and nurse and no let down occurs. I notice that after a few days, it will return. He is almost 12 months now, and he just nurses more frequently during these days. He is almost 24 pounds, and 30.5 inches long, so I am not worried about his weight. I am counting on the whole supply and demand theory? I also make sure I am drinking plenty of fluids..

    HTH!

    My periods returned when my DS was about 9 or 10 months old. I did not notice a marked drop in supply each month, but did have a gradual drop in supply after that time that did not rebound back . I think I may also have not been drinking enough fluids. I was able to increase my supply by making sure to drink my full 8 glasses of water each day and taking fenugreek (I took three capsules, 3x/day). I noticed a big difference within just a couple days with the fenugreek and increased fluids.
