Hi Everyone! I have been EPing for 5 weeks now and I give you experienced women MAJOR credit b/c I HATE every second of it and can't wait till it's over. I will be lucky if I make it 6 months. Anyway, I was getting a TON of milk, approximately 6-8 oz. per pump up until about the last week. I have a ton frozen, which is great, but I'm not sure why my milk has seemed to drop in half. I still get a good amount in the middle of the night and morning, but come afternoon/evening it's down to 3-5 oz. per pump. What's going on? I pump every 2-3 hours. I do go a little longer at night, but I can't help it. I'm too tired and there's no way I can force myself to get up more often. I'm already cranky enough as it is. I just replaced my pump parts b/c I read somewhere it could be that they warp and could result in loss of suction. Trying to drink a lot of water. I'm majorly stressed, and I know that could be a reason too. Help?!
