Do you notice a drop in supply during the week before AF comes? How do you combat it?

I noticed she would nurse more at that time, so I figured maybe it dipped a little. I would allow her to nurse more-but we were also at that point where I was trying to cut nursing down, so it all worked out!

Yes With Juliet I noticed it in my pumping output at work. Now, I started noticing it in how he nursed, being more impatient and pulling off more, nursing more frequently. He doesnt do that as much now, but I'm trying to track if maybe that's why he sleeps great (1-2 wakeups/night) for a couple weeks then terribly (3-4+ wakeups) for a couple weeks. Along with his weight fluctuations. To combat it I try to make an effort to drink more water and sometimes have oatmeal, but overall I usually forget to do anything special.
