I am a mother to a 5-month old boy and it seems like my milk supply is decreasing. He always seem hungry after he finishes eating so yesterday, I fed him a bottle of pumped milk and he took approximately 2 more ounces. Lately, when I pump, I only seem to be able to get 2-3 ounces at each sitting, when before, I would pump about 4 ounces.
He just started to sleep through the night with the last feeding being at 7pm, a pump at 10pm and then a dream feed at 2am which holds him until 7am. Could it be because I am not feeding as often so the milk supply has gone down?
Please help. I would like to continue exclusively breastfeeding as long as possible but I may need to start supplementing if this keeps up.
Thanks in advance!
