I'm so glad your supply is back! Good job, momma! It is definitely harder to increase it so far in, however I've also done it when was 8 months pp after loosing almost half of my milk after mastitis. Funny you said about everybody being sick except your LO-my whole family is convinced that it is my milk protects my son from getting sick (he's only been sick once)! Lol I know that breastfed babies also get sick, but just to be on a safe side I definitely keep going through the winter :)

Yay! I'm so glad to read this! I just had 2 weeks off for Christmas vacation and I've managed to lose about 8 ounces a day from just being off schedule and missing pumps due to illness. I pump 5 times a day and am trying to make at least 4 of them power pumps, hopefully mine will be back to normal soon. I am 4 months PP and back at work and it is very hard!
