Help! After 5 months is it possible that I could stop producing milk?

my daughter is five months old and I have been pumping the whole time. All of a sudden it's as if my milk has just stopped is this possible? I religiously breastfeed her every night but even my first pump of the morning was practically nothing!

This happened to me too. I pumped with both my girls and with the youngest at about 5 months or so I started noticing my supply decreasing. Talk to your lactation consultant she maybe able to offer some advice or suggestion. I tried several but in the end it only lasted until she was about 9 month. My consultant told me that my body had just been through too much in a short amount of time. I had 2 babies and breastfed/pumped with both in a 2 years and 9 months. Hugs to you both and keep trying.
