    Just a few questions
    How old is your LO?
    Also, why are you supplementing? Is it medical reasons?

    Hi Lilibug,
    My LO is 4 mo and I supplement b/c she lost 5oz by her 2wk appointment so the Dr had me supplement and now I just can't get my body to make up that amount that I was initially supplementing. I have a thread with more detail in the increasing you supply board.

    awe mama! I'm sorry to hear that you had to do that!
    I don't think that it fluctuates from day to day. Some things that might decrease the supply (which I'm sure you already know of) are aunt flow and medications.... but I don't think its a dramatic fluctuation day to day. Somedays they are hunger than others or maybe a growth spurt. Again you might already know that your supply is established very early on. HTH
