is my supply dipping?
I've been back to work for a little over a month. I work 11p-7a 5 days a week, and I sleep during the day. DH is a SAHD and brings LO to me during the day to feed him. LO is 3 months old and has been gaining well.I pump 3 times/night. Baby eats 2-3 times when I'm gone. I put 3 oz in each bottle, he usually eats the whole bottle. When I first went back I was getting 4-6oz at each pumping session, so I had 12-16oz and the most he took was 9oz each night. Over the last week I've only been getting 3oz per session, so I make enough for him but not as much as I used to. I'm worried that the trend will continue and next week I won't get enough to feed him. My breasts feel empty at the end of the pumping session. I put new valves on the pump with no change.Do you think this is the beginning of a drop in supply? the only thing I changed is that I increased my zoloft from 75 to 100mg about 2 weeks ago. I've been on 75 since right after he was born. I'm tempted to buy fenugreek or moremilk. I am so motivated to do this until he's at least a year.
