Re: 8 Month Old Not Gaining Weight, Please Advise
Yes. Some moms do have hormonal problems which inhibit the establishment/maintenance of a good milk supply. Problems with the thyroid- both hyperthyroid (too much thyroid hormone) and hypothyroid (too little)- are common postpartum, and can cause issues with supply. Moms with polycystic ovarian syndrome (PCOS) sometimes have problems with supply, perhaps because of the excess of androgens (so-called male hormones, though women have them too, just in smaller amounts) that is part of PCOS. Moms who are on hormonal birth control sometimes experience issues with milk supply, probably because most (maybe all?) hormonal birth control contains synthetic progesterone (the hormone of pregnancy).
