Breastfeeding while pregnant or on a period.

I hear milk supply drops while pregnant, or on a period. Is this always true, how much of a drop did you experience?

  • It will vary woman to woman. Some women do have a drop, others do not.

  • Didn't experience any drop in supply. The most important thing is to stay hydrated and nurse often, on demand.

    *some* women do find their self without a sustainable milk supply toward the mid-to end of pregnancy, but it is rare.
