Decreased lactation: what to do?

During breastfeeding, it's common to experience a drop in lactation, but don't worry, it is often temporary.

  • Most moms produce enough milk to feed their babies, but if you do notice a drop, there are ways to encourage lactation.
  • Stimulate your breasts by having your baby feed very regularly, even outside of mealtime.
  • Drink plenty of water and get enough to eat.
  • Take the time to rest - some lactation decreases are due to fatigue or stress.
  • In any case, don't hesitate to ask your doctor for advice.

No I don’t have postpartum depression but my milk supply drastically decreased in a day I’m very sad🥺🥺🥺💔💔💔 it is currently 0526 she has an appointment at 1515 this is horrible! Any tip’s experienced breastfeeding moms!? I will pump every hour now and after feeds, continue to take my prenatal vitamins and eat lactation cookies😩😩😩I just hope I’m not another story of a mom who couldn’t increase her supply and it dried up 🥺SHE IS ONLY 2 months

Try salted, toasted peanuts. They usually help. But they have to be peanuts, toasted and salted. Not sure about nuts.

What is your feeding schedule like? Ans do you exclusively breastfeed? An off day shouldn't be a cause for concern; depending on what you ate and drank, it can either increase or decrease.
