Do any of you guys have an idea , on how to increase my milk flow again ? 

I did have plenty , but it is sooo hot here , the hottest summer apparently in mnay decades in my area of the World , that with the temperatures the way they are and my working outside a lot , it seems , that my milk has dried up a bit 

I do drink lots and lots of water throughout the day , but I am not sure , what else I can do !

Any recommendations ?

What makes you think your milk supply has diminished?

Nursing more often will increase supply. Keep up that water intake. Other than that you should do fine.

Just the way , she acts , when drinking , my breast tissue hurts and she sucks and sucks , but acts , like she not really getting a lot 

Plus , she doesn´t make as many gulping sounds as she normally does
