Hi. I have a 9 month old and started getting my periods when he was 5 months. My supply drops a few days before my period starts (3-4 days) and it comes back to normal around the 3rd day of my period. I found that consuming calcium rich foods helps. Chicken soup also helps.

Some women notice a slight dip in their supply during the days of their menstrual cycle. Others don't notice any changes. But your milk is still perfectly nutritious and fine for your baby. And the drop isn't so huge that your baby won't be getting enough… but could be enough that baby wants to nurse a bit more frequently during this time.
