What is making you think your supply has decreased?

You're probably just regulating.   My LO was 3 mo on the 23rd and I've definitely regulated in the past couple of weeks from making more milk than she needed, to now making exactly what she needs.   It's normal.

If you are still changing plenty of dipes, there's no need ot do anything. True supple decreases are reflected in a drastic drop in dipes. Full breast feeling should be gone. Engorgement should be gone. Pump output normally lowers at around this time (half ounce to two ounces is normal) and baby SHOULD be more demanding as this is growth spurt time. Let baby do the increasing.

Now, if you're seeing a true drop in dipes, our resources sticky ahs everything you need. But 99% of moms who think their supply is decreasing are actually just looking at the wrong things.
