My 13 month old son went on a 5 day nursing strike. While he wasn't nursing, I only pumped 1-2 times a day. Before the strike he nursed every two hours. Now, he is nursing again (which I am stoked about). Do you think that my milk supply can amp back up, with his regular nursing? My supply changed a lot during the strike (as far as I could tell from what I was pumping). He eats solid food well and nurses contentedly, so I am not concerned-just curious.
im going through a strike right now! I hate it ! =( Can I ask how old was your son when this happened and what do you think triggered the strike. What did you do to remediate it? I was told to pump after you nurse to increase producation as im sure your know its all about supply and demand. Or you can just pump a few minutes every so often to increase your producation whethe before or after nursing just to keep the demand up.
Good luck with it.
