i have been breastfeeding my second dd since july 21, 2007 . so almost 3 years.Well two weeks ago i had so much supply i was leaking, this week nothing. She is not ready to wean , and has been a very unhappy little lady. She only nurses at naps and bedtime and sometimes in the am when we first get up. What can cause my supply to be gone so quick? can i get it back? please no bashing..

Your supply can drop drastically the week before or week of your period

It's probably your period.  Any hormone shift would do all sorts of crazy things to my supply; periods always made it drop so I got to where I could predict it by how DD acted at the breast lol.  Fussy and clingy: period soon :)  Pregnancy has done strange things to it too; first it was up, then down, now it's up again.

ok thanks lady, so i guess if it is my period causing it , then it should be back soon.

Leaking is not an indication of anything. Are you on birth control with estrogen? That is a known supply killer.
