Why has my supply tanked?

So I thought DD (5.5m) was going through a growth spurt. She will normally sleep until 3 or 4am, then up to nurse, then back down until morning. During the day, every 2 hours or so... but the last two weeks, it's every hour, all day and all night.

I'm a BM donor and usually I pump morning and night and average an extra 10-12oz per day but I'm only getting out maybe 2oz per day now.

This has gone on for two weeks. I've just tested, and I'm not pregnant. I'm doing all the things I can to increase milk. I've resorted to fenugreek (though I can't donate while I'm taking it, so that sucks).

Any other reason why my supply has tanked and isn't responding to the increased demand? I'm still pumping 2X per day, even if it's just to stimulate...


Pseudo-crunchy mama who is just tryin' to do the right thing for DS (Dec/09) and DD (April/11)
