I love when we receive emails with questions that our blog readers could benefit from! Here is a question from one of our mamas who is wondering why her pumping output has decreased.
I met with you awhile back when I first went back to work to set up a good pumping schedule. It has worked like a charm these last 6 months. Thank you for that!
My little guy is about to turn one and I’ve noticed a big reduction in my pumped breast milk the last few weeks. I’ve gone from pumping around 25 ounces of milk/work shift to around 15 oz. It feels like it happened overnight. I’m just wondering if you have any suggestions on things I can do to get milk back or if this is just a normal progression. I’m not ready to give up breastfeeding yet, but want to make sure he is getting enough milk. He has been eating ALOT of solid food for about 5 months, so I’m sure this has had an impact on my supply :-(
Thanks for your time!
