I would like to know if anyone else is experieincing this. I have a 4.5 month baby who is EBF and gaining weight well etc but it seems like my supply varies from week to week and sometimes I feel like I have plenty of milk and other times my breasts feel much more soft (even after 3-4 hours) and baby acts as if she is not getting enough when sucking. These periods seem to last 3-4 days before I begin to full a little fuller again and she sounds like she is gulping down more milk and for longer after letdown. We have been through the usual growth spurts and this does not seem to be quite as dramatic but she is certainly less satisfied and wakes more frquently through the night at these times. I am eating and drinking well and resting all I can (also have a 21month old!) and taking fenugreek and nursing tea. Is anyone else experiencing this?

It happened to me too, I took Healthy Nursing tea by Secrets Of Tea and it helped a lot, also drink a lot of water.
Good luck
