Could one day of being sick dropped my supply?
by jen282

I had a bout of the 24hr stomach bug and couldn't really eat or drink much that day. I still nursed all day, but I feel like my pump out put wasn't the same when I returned to work. Could that one day of being slightly dehydrated affect my supply?? And if so, what can I do to turn it around quick??

    I was pumping 50 ounces a day for six months. I didn't regulate, I just naturally produced a lot of milk. My sister was the same.


    Quoting shortyali:

    I agree with what Tabi said. When you said dropped by 30ozs my eyes bugged out.

    I was sick for a week and my supply hasn't been the same since. It dropped by 30 oz a day. I haven't been able to get it up since.

    No wonder you never regulated, you were pumping to maintain an oversupply.

    Why are you so offended by how much milk I produced? Does it really even matter? You're so dead set on trying to prove me wrong. Just accept that some women naturally produce a lot of milk and some women don't. It's not a bad thing, it's a part of life.

    I am not offended by any means and wow defensive much, lol. Just putting the info out there so if a ftm who is trying to bf reads this doesn't think this happens all the time. I was the same way with my DD and I did it on purpose because of a TT issue no one beloved me about until she was 9 months.

    Eating mints can decrease your supply?


    Quoting kblpooh:

    This. Also avoid eating mints, that can decrease supply.

    It can take a hit. Nurse frequently, pump a little more often and increase your fluids.

    Well I sure do wish I could get it back up. My body just isn't having it. It'd probably be easier if she were nursing but oh well.

    Yes. I don't know the specifics or any links to send you to look at. I have seen people on here talk about it as well as my lactation consultant told me that and sage can decrease supply.
