I noticed cramping for about a week now.. and as of Monday my supply is going down to almost half of what I had befor. I noticed yesterday Im bleeding after 2.5 weeks of nothing. i dont understand.. is it the hormones of my body trying to regulate that is causing my supply to go down, cus I heard you cant or shouldnt bleed while breastfeedig.. I am confused and wondering if this is what is causing my supply to decrease.

You can get your cycle back while breastfeeding. I usually get mine back at around 4-5 months, but earlier is not unheard of.

I have heard that supply can dip right before and during your period and that it usually goes back up once bleeding is done, so that may be what you're seeing. If it doesn't go back up you can try cluster feeding to get production up.

we are doing cluster feeding and OMG what a chore it is with the 2 little ones also. I have a bunch of chores I want to do. It seems I put himd own, I have to run to get one thing done and then run to tend to the little ones and so on lol.

Your supply can dip when AF starts. It should only last a few days tho.

AF came back for me this week, 7 weeks pp and I'm breastfeeding. He's started going a lot longer without eating during the day, so I think that did it. It's normal, just not as common to get it so early while breastfeeding.

I haven't noticed any supply changes, though, so I can't help you there.

I breast fed my other 2 children well over a year with no problems and got my period by 4 months each time.

If it dips you can take calcium and magnesium to get it back up while you have AF.

Really? Not Fenugreek, or combine it to?
