STM Q: BFing and milk supply isssues

I'm pregnant with my 2nd baby. I'm still EPing for baby #1 who is 10 months old. They'll be 18 months apart. I had LOTS & LOTS of milk for baby #1. I'm hoping to breastfeed baby #2, but I am worried about milk supply issues. For STMs out there with kids close together in age, did you have enough milk for baby #2? I've heard of moms drying up really fast & not have enough milk for #2. Any advice?

  • I had a way easier time BFing #2 than #1.  No supply issues, milk came in on day 2.  The only hard part was keeping #1 busy while I fed #2.

  • My 2nd is only 7wks but I have more milk this time. My milk came in about 12hrs faster this time. My babies are 17 months apart.

  • So far, my supply has been higher with each kid.
    I had supply issues with DD1 and had to supplement the first few months.
    I noticed a supply drop after a few months with DD2 and took Dom Peridone.
    3 months in with Baby Boy and no issues so far.
