Now a supply issue -WHAT ELSE?!

So I posted about my 9wk old wanting to suck all afternoon. I was worried it was supply- well today I found it probably is He didn't gain anything this week. Last week at support group he was 10-6 before I fed him and 10-10 afterward. Today he was 10-8 before I fed him and 10-10 afterward Previously every week he was gaining 7 oz!
Gosh dang- could we please have ANOTHER PROBLEM?! He NEVER gets supplemented, I feed on demand, he doesn't take a paci (except that one day), I am ALWAYS with him. I drink over 2 liters of water every day- no caffeine at all. The only thing I can figure out is that he sleeps all night and maybe that's hurting my supply?! I'm not going to wake him up, but maybe I need to get up and pump in the middle of the night? I did get a really bad cold this weekend, but I didn't take anything for it. I'm not taking ANY meds except diflucan- no antihistamine, no hormones. WHAT THE HECK!?!?!?!?! I HATE feeling like I'm starving him.
