What can I do about milk flow slowing down?

My daughter is almost 5 months and right after Christmas, my milk flow slowed way down. Now she is so used to getting a fast flow that she cries and won't be patient enough to eat. I have been back at work and pumping for about a month when this occurred. I can't really cut out bottles because she has to have them at daycare.

I know it's not just a growth spurt because I used to pump between 4-8 ounces in about 8 minutes and now it takes me 10-15 mins to pump 3-4 ounces.

Any advice?

"Healthy nursing tea" was really a gift for my baby and me. I was producing very less milk and tried everything under the sun and finally this supplement worked to build my supply.
