What can it be and how to fix?

Bfing for over 3 months and things were going great! Awesome maybe to much in supply chunkiest of my babies super happy smiling baby.

Today she was fussy rejecting the boob. I felt like I did not have much milk then normal but could still manually squirt. Dd has been sucking her hands and acting hungry.

Sunday I started the mini pill- could my supply dip that much

Monday (last Monday) I started working out but not crazy marathon training or anything

Drank some tm mothers milk tea today and got more at the store today

Breast feel sore-is that bc of the pill?

Yes the mini pill can cause issues.

Dr. Jack Newman recently posted an article about it.

I would highly suggest stopping it and using some form of non hormonal birth control.

The mini pill can cause problems for some women. So definitely one thing to consider.

Another thing is that you have reached prime age for teething. That could also be part of the problem.

It could be that baby is sick.

You decide which of those feels most likely and work from there.

I had supply issues (and a failure to thrive baby) my whole first go around and never knew it was because of the pill. This time I am pill free and still going strong at almost 9 months. The difference has been amazing.

Please read up and make an informed decision. Only you know your body. Best of luck!

Re: What can it be and how to fix?

Thank you everyone for all the advice. I have a super happy baby today! I made iced tea out of the mothers milk tea and I made smoothies with oats flax and brewers yeast. But I still think I will stop taking the pill.

I was very torn about it in the first place but we are done having children. I was going to and may get my tubes tide but dh is not a fan of any procedures. Really no help from him bc he is not a fan if the pill either. I know I should try nfp but I think I need to take a course to get it all.

Ugh so much easier ntnp

The mini pill tanked my supply. I stopped taking it after about a week and my supply came back.
