What Causes Breast Milk Supply To Drop?


If you get your period, when you have it, it may drop. (Not everyone gets their period when breastfeeding) Also when you're sick, it’s possible to have a drop. So what’s the solution?

The solution is to increase your @legendairymilk lactation tea and supplements a week before you are supposed to get your period or while sick. You can also try cluster pumping which is ten minutes on and ten minutes off over the course of an hour, and yes that is a lot to do!⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀⠀

Also, it’s important to note that if you are pumping and you don’t change the membranes or duckbill valves on your pump often enough, your supply can drop! For the @medela_us membranes, they need to be replaced every 4-6 weeks or when they are not suctioning properly. The duckbills last for 6-8 weeks.
