my name is Tam and I am a SAHM to 11 month old Summer.

I was EPing since she was 1 month old due to poor latch and failure to thrive.

We went on vacation to Hawaii and i ended up with mastatis which totally KILLED my supply! before I went to Hawaii I was pumping 45-50oz a day. Upon my return from Hawaii I was pumping 14oz a day.

Since we got back (a few weeks now) my supply has been getting lower and lower, my supply went from 14oz, to 9oz to 7oz.

I didn't pump at all yesterday, do you think I should today? or am I ok to just let the remaining milk dry up on its own?

I really don't want mastitis again.

hey Tam!!! i have missed seeing you around.
personally i would see how you feel. if you start feeling engorged(even slightly) i would pump just to relieve the pressure.
if you dont get full then i would leave it be.

If you get engorged you can just try cutting down on the # & length of the pumping sessions.
