Eat oatmeal, drink at least 8 oz of water for every hour your awake, take 3 capsules of fenugreek 3x daily and you take 3 capsules of blessed thistle 3x daily it helps big time it helped me I notice a big difference in 48 hours. The website I get the fenugreek and blesses thistle from is called lactationconnection.com

How often are you pumping? It's normal for pump amounts to vary across the day. Usually, your pump output is the most in the morning.

Need more info! Can you explain what you mean by it just stops? Are you pumping? Are you putting baby to breast? If you're pumping, how often are you pumping?
