Breastfeeding

Low supply?

I am a ftm and have possibly a dumb question. I ebf currently every 2 to 3 hours. I would always feel full and my breast would be firm. As of today they feel extremely soft not full. Did my supply lower or has my body adjusted? I still hear him swallow but I don't know if he was getting what he used to.

Re: Low supply?

  • Your body is probably just regulating.

  • I'd say regulating. Mine never feel full anymore unless she sleeps for more than six hours or so (pretty rare for her), or if she only gets a chance to feed on one side before falling back to sleep at night.

    Just keep an eye on the number of wet diapers if you are really concerned.
