help! i think my supply is dwindling

my son will be 5 months on the 2nd. He has exclusively nursed until the last 3 weeks and a couple times a week he gets a couple of bottles due to me working part time again. its still breast milk, just from a bottle. I feel like my supply is going down and I dont want this. I want to continue to breastfeed as long as i can. any advice how to get my supply back up???

TIA!!

    Cluster feed (or at least put LO to the breast and let his suck).  And drink more water.  That's what our pedi told me.  I never had any issues and I cluster feed from about 1 month (ish) to 3.5 months right before bed (5pm, 6:30pm and then 8pm).

    You can also try taking herbs such as blessed thistle and fenugreek, or More Milk Plus.

    Try the nursing teas - Mother's Milk or Women's Nursing Support.  They have really worked for me.
