My son is 4 months old and has been EBF. In the past month I have had the flu and now I am sick with a bad cold. I have noticed a drastic drop in my supply in the past 2 weeks and even slower let-down. After the flu, I started pumping extra to try to increase my supply then I got sick again and I am so tired that by the time he goes to sleep at 9 I am ready for bed too! I am currently taking Fenugreek and Blessed Thistle, but am still having issues...I think that I am too exhausted! I probably had 6-0 or 70 oz in the freezer and am now down to about 30 left...I am afraid that I will get to the point that I won't have enough to feed him...I need some encouragement and advice please...will my supply increase back enough to get me through??
