My son is 6 months old and breastfeed. My son gets 3 bottles during the day of breast milk and I breastfeed him 3 times. I seem to be producing less and less milk as the days go by. I used to have a decent frozen supply and now I seem to be tapping into that supply more and more. I would like to replenish the supply, if possible, because I would like to continue breastfeeding until he is 1 year old. I could use any suggestions or recommendations! Thank you.Answer Question

You need to be breastfeeding more often. When you are with your baby you should be breastfeeding on demand. At 6 months your baby could get just 1 bottle a day while you are at work along with solids. While you are together the baby could nurse 6-8 times.
Drinking more fluids doesn't make you have more milk. Babies need to continue to be breastfed 6-8 or more times after they turn 6 months and start solids. Breastmilk is to remain their main source of nutrition for proper brain growth and development. It's common for babies of working moms to seem to nurse all night. My DIL works and my grandson nurses at least 2 or 3 times at night.
