Supply Drop due to illness
Sat, 03-13-2010 - 11:46pm

I've been battling a stomach bug and my supply has dropped way down - back to the depressing numbers I haven't seen since I first started pumping.

Will I need to boost up my number of pumpings once I've recovered? Right now I'm trying to stay at my normal 5 pumpings per day and the results are just so sad. I've currently stopped taking my domperidone while my stomach recovers from this bug (everything has been upsetting it - food, liquids, etc.)

I'm just curious to hear about others' experiences with supply issues after an illness.

Lots of rest and good nutrition will often help recover oz's after an illness.
