EBFing Question! 4 Month Fussies?

Hey Mama's! Thanks for checking out my post! I have a few questions for you experienced EBF'ers! :-)

My daughter will be 5 months on Sunday and the past couple weeks I feel as though my milk supply has gone down - I have been pumping in the evening after she nurses to get my breasts to produce more milk. I use to pump upwards of 3 ounces during a 10 minute period and now I barely get an ounce. Pumping has helped as my breasts wouldn't even have enough for her by evening time when it was time for her bed!

She has also been acting weird while nursing. During letdown she will pull off and cry, she will sometimes refuse to nurse on a side (to point the point where she will scream until I put her on the other side) and I feel like she doesn't nurse near as long as she used too - only 5 minutes now when she would nurse for 20 minutes.

Is this something that happens normally? I have read about the 4 month fussies and I'm wondering if this might be related?

Thank you so much for your time and any advice/input! :-)
