Okay, I am starting to panic. My LO is almost 5 months old and for the past week the volume of BM I can pump out is steadily decreasing. Since I started back to work which was two months ago I've been pumping twice at work and have been pumping out about 20 oz. total from those sessions. The past week I've seen the total volume decrease to 12 oz. I'm starting to panic now since my LO is wanting to eat more and I am barely keeping up with him. I do have a good freezer stash but I always want to feed him the freshest milk possible. I only work 2 days a week and I was hoping to not have to pump on the days I don't work but I might not have a choice. I guess I have just been spoiled by my good milk production. I also think my LO might be going through a growth spurt because he always wants to eat especially if he is nursing. I was just wondering how long it should take for my supply to increase to his needs. In the past it has only taken a day or so to catch up but now it has been more than a week and it still hasn't picked up it is getting worse. Could my pump be wearing out?
Any help would be great!
