I am curious when you had your first postpartum period. I am going on 7 months and nothing, but I know it is usually delayed with BF. With my first LO I did not have a period until I stopped nursing her at about 14 months.
I did not have to pump with my first one, but my situation has changed and I have to pump ALL the time with our 2nd. I also recently had a drop in my supply. I have gone to great lengths to increase it so I will have some stored up, but I have topped out at 18 oz./day. During my recent crash I got maybe 12 oz, requiring me to dip into my freezer stash which is not depleted.
I think I am back to 18oz. but it has been a struggle. I drink Mother's Milk tea 3+ times a day. I eat oatmeal every morning (UGH!). I pump every 2 hours for 10-20 minutes depending on my nipples soreness (story in another post). I have purchased larger breast shields. And still I only get 18 ozs. It is only enough to make bottles for the following day. I was hoping that once my DD started eating solids I would be able to start storing up, but it is not the case.
I will end it there because that brings up daycare issues and that is for another thread.
