DS is now 2 and a half, and we've had the best nursing relationship (through all the ups and downs) - but this is a new one for me!
Right around the time I ovulated this month (which is a ballpark - not my best charting month), my nipples became so incredible sore! Over the past week, it's continued (to the point I dread nursing, when I used to love it). No signs of thrush or infection, DS has had all his teeth for a while - but I am seeing lots of teeth marks and clamping down...which I just realized is from low supply. There is nothing coming out at all when I hand express (or a couple drops, most) and I only hear him swallow maaaaaybe 3-4 times per super long nursing session. I've been working with him on his latch, but when no milk comes out, he'll unlatch, re-latch, unlatch, re-latch, clamp down, etc.
He's still nursing several times a day (every couple hours, all night, during naps), but we have had some days out of the house leading up to this where it was stretched to 3-4 hours once a day - could that be enough to do this?
I also know that alot of women experience a dip in supply after O and before AF - I've had that happen before - but nothing like this! None of this pain, or this big a drop.
I eat oatmeal every day, drink lots of water - I'm adding Mother's Milk tea back in - any other ideas?
PS - even with this month being a charting flop, I really doubt I'm pg.
ETA - I just realized I've also added running back in the mix this past week. Not a ton, just 3x week, 30-40 minutes (2.5-3 miles) - could that do this?
