Exercising and supply

Question for all you mamas - I had some supply issues when DS was around 3months when I started working out again about 5 days/week (power yoga and weights)....so I quit working out out of fear of losing my supply again. However, around that time is when we discovered DS tongue and lip tie which have since been clipped and we are nursing well so I'm wondering now if that supply issue was due to the tongue/lip tie and had nothing to do with my working out. Thoughts? Has any one had experience with supply issues and working out? DH and I teach (well I used to now I am a full time SAHM) yoga and own our own fitness studio so it is a passion of mine but it's farrrrr more important to have a good supply of milk.

I appreciate your thoughts!

I think if you gradually add the exercise it'll give your body the time it needs to adjust. My son had a tongue tie corrected at 18 months and I didn't notice a flood of milk after that.

I agree. Just make sure you are drinking extra water. My DD is almost 17m and I still forget I need more, that is until my mouth goes so dry

I have Heard friends who suddenly jumped back in saying they noticed a drop in supply....I think the key is going gradually and tons of water.
