    Well, I think this is it...

    I've been EPing for four months, and in the past two weeks my supply has just dropped!! I used to pump enough to make all her bottles for the day every morning and freeze around 15 ounces. Now I'm barely pumping enough to make 2 or 3 bottles at a time!! When I pump I'm not even getting enough for one feeding . I wanted to make it to 6 months so bad! Once I noticed it dropping I went back up to 7 or 8 pumps a day, and have been drinking a ton of water every day but it just keeps dropping. I do have enough enough saved for another 2 months, I'm just not ready to be done, and I can't figure out what happened...

    I just needed to get this out, I'm not sure what I'm looking for by posting this.

    I EPed for 1 month then EBF for 2 weeks before my milk dried up with was tough and I got so depressed but you did an amazing job for making it 4 months so don't be hard on yourself. I wanted so back to make it to 6 months but I only made it 4 weeks. I guess some body just are meant to make it that far but we tried and that's all that matters

    I think there's some supplement you can try taking? Hopefully one of the bf experts sees this and can give you some advice.

    Don't be discouraged, you tried you best. That's all that matters. Oatmeal, Mother Milk Tea, fenugreek are all things you can take to help with supply.

    There is a prescription you can get from your doctor as well.

    My supply dried up when DD was about 2-3 months old. It was really disheartening but she is doing so well now! You tried your best that's the best thing that matters!
