My supply has dropped!

Question:

7 months exclusively pumping the entire time used to get 12/20 oz each pump at 3 pumps per day. I had surgery and dropped a pump so now pumping twice day. My supply has crashed and I only get 4/8 oz now. I'm ready to give up... any suggestions? I take reglan and drink plenty of water.

Answer:

Anita, Adding back in the dropped pumping session is probably the best way to try and boost your supply. By adding the extra stimulation your body will respond and make more milk. Best of luck! 

Kindest Regards,
