I'm posting this here because I feel like it gets more traffic. My daughter recently turned 9 months old and since I've noticed the amount of pumped milk has decreased. I pump 3 times at work and had been pumping once right before bed. My first session was always good, 5-6 oz. Each session after decreases. I wanted to cut out the last session because I was exhausted and not getting very much. Then while she's at school she'll have to BM bottles and 2 formula bottles in addition to her yogurt and lunch. Could cutting out that last session be affecting my supply? I'm now getting 3-4 oz. if I'm lucky and it only gets worse from there. This has been going on for over 2 weeks now. At first I thought my supply dip was due to getting my period but could that still be the cause? I'm trying to drink a ton of water. I have tried the Mothers Milk tea months ago but never noticed a change. Any advice is appreciate.
Re: Supply drop
This is must be hard for you - just do what you can!
You can try the supplements and foods mentioned above. You can also rent a hospital grade pump as it's much more efficient. You can try pumping more or even power pumping.
