I have a 4 month old. We have been doing great w/ giving EBM @ daycare & nursing on weekends. Normally I express 4-6 oz @ ea sitting...I pump about 4 to 5 times a day during the week. I recently had my first period since being pregnant. About a week prior I noticed the consistancy of the milk in my right breast was a lot more watery than the left. This seems to have evened out, however now I can barely pump a total of 2 ounces combined.
We have both been treated for thrush, with no complications. I am beginning to worry. Does this mean the decline of my breast milk supply?
Should I do something other than pumping & nursing to increase it?
I have read about MilkThistle...is this something that works?
I would like to continue to nurse my son.
He doesn't seem to be fussing at the breast. Has normal input/output & is sleeping the same amount of time that he normally has.
