I have been EP for 4 months and got a bad stomach virus last night, needless to say I don't have much food or fluid left in me. I also went 12 hours with out pumping then another 7 after that. I can already tell my milk has decreased. I usually pump every 6 hours and get 40oz a day. I am slowly starting to drink liquid and keep it down but do you think my milk will bounce back to 40oz? Please give me some feedback!

Usually after being sick you can get it back.

UGH! That's the worst feeling in the world!! Happened to me about 5 months pp and my supply went from 40 oz/day to 20 oz/day. I kept pumping my regular times (I think at the time it was 6x a day) and slowly worked my fluids up with gatorade and water and within 2 weeks I was back up to 40. It scared me to death and seeing your supply go away like that is depressing. Just takes time. Hope you feel better :)
