Oh, at my highest production, I can make 64oz/day. My lowest is 40. And lately its been sticking around the 40 and my twins need around 30 each. I've been pulling from frozen storage and each twin gets about 2oz of formula a day.

I am sorry you're still bleeding so much! Has your doctor tested you to see if you're anemic? Anemia can definitely cause a supply drop. Between the bleeding and hypothyroidism, I'd think your OB might be in the best position to help you. Have you talked to your OB about how the new dose affected your supply?
