    Just chiming in to say we are at 9 months and I have been wondering about my supply, too. Must be common...I think I remember it with my older ds, too. I ordered some More Milk Plus to see if I need a little boost. 9 months is usually about the time for another growth spurt, too, right?

    I am experiencing the same thing! At 9mo I have noticed a dip in my pumping output as well. I do think eating more solids has a lot to do with it. I remember this exact thing happening with DS1 at around 10mo and I freaked out, stressing about every drop. I also didn't have a big stash in the freezer like I do now. I agree with adding another pumping, eating oatmeal, lots of water, etc. You could also cut back on the solids a bit and have baby nurse more. It'll be ok, you're doing great!

Sorry if it's TMI.
    Did your supply come back up? How many days was it down. I am on day 4 now. Plus LO is teething big time so is eating less anyways. What timing!!
