low milk supply suddenly. G[PLM] Due February 18; 18 kids; California 1012 posts

I am 4mo pp now with my 3rd. I have always had an oversupply of milk but now my milk is slowly drying up. I pump for the most part as my daughter was premature and we are still working on breastfeeding. One thing I have noticed that may go along with it is I am brusing very easily out of no where. Also, I went to the dentist and when they gave me a shot to numb my gums she said I bled a lot and my gums bruised right away and pretty bad. She did say that was not normal. I am not positive this has to do with it but think it might. Any suggestions? I have a doc appt on wed.

Anemia? Maybe it can decrease your milk supply.

Well if you're mostly pumping your milk could be regulating which could be making it harder to pump? I'd really focus on latching her to help build your supply back up. Idk about the dentist thing though :?

Thanks ladies, I am thinking anemia or something hormonal.
