Re: now I'm nervous I killed my supply
Is your baby wetting lots of diapers and gaining weight? If so, everything is probably fine. He may be having a growth spurt and that might be why he has been fussy the past couple of days. Also, if you started your menses, that can affect supply. When I worry that my supply is dropping, I add extra pumping sessions to help increase it.
Like the pp mentioned, after a while your body adjusts. I used to have to wear nursing pads and now w/ my lo being almost 10 months old, I've been able to chuck the pads
A great site that also gives information about bf'ing is kellymom.com.
Oh I forgot, there's a thing called cluster feeding where babies want to feed more frequently and longer at night. It's on the kellymom.com site.
