This week I've noticed a major change in my supply. I'm noticing that each day my supply is dropping by half an oz. Monday when I pumped I got a total of 5oz in the morning, then 4 oz @ lunch & 3 oz @ 4pm. Luckly this was more than enough for my little boy on tuesday for the 3oz bottle wasn't even touch. Tuesday I was able to pump 4.5oz in the morning, 4 oz @ lunch, & 3.5 oz @ 4pm. Yesterday I only pumped 4oz in the morning, just below 4 oz @ lunch, then 3.5 oz @ 4pm. This morning I got just below 4oz.
Before I was ranging 7oz in the morning, 5 oz @ lunch & 4 oz @ 4pm.
I'm starting to worry that if this trend keeps up I'm not going to be able to produce enough milk for my 5 1/2 month LO while I'm @ work...
He hasn't been wanting me as soon as I return home either, he's been eating every 4 hrs instead of 3 according to grandma. We've been giving him cearel with 1oz of breast milk that I can express for him around 9pm & then he falls asleep on my breast in bed.
I'm really not sure what's going on. I haven't had the mother's milk tea in 2 weeks... could it have been helping that much??
I'm going to stop tonight & pick it up, if the store has gotten it in.
I know my thoughts are rambling here and I'm sorry I'm just worried...
