I think for the first time I am having supply issues. Baby seems irritated after a couple of minutes, especially on the right side. I have fed him on one side only since birth but I have to offer both breasts for him to be satisfied now. I also tried to pump a couple of tablespoons after feeding baby to mix with an avocado (we are introducing solids) and only got 1/2 a teaspoon! Is it just a growth spurt? I have oatmeal every morning and have increased water intake and even had a beer last night. When do I start to worry?

You are at the poitn where you could be experiencing the 6 month growth spurt.

But has anything else changed? Supply wont drop for no reason, typically. Start BC? Take any medicine recently?

It was just a growth spurt. My supply caught up in 2 days.

I would say growth spurt I know around that time I felt like maybe my son wasn't getting enough to eat but he was staying at a good weight and not losing so I didn't worry too much he wasn't really fussing and within 2 weeks we notice his little spurt of growth he got lol.
