<p>I think i'm noticing a pattern of my supply dipping quite a bit at ovulation.  I read online that this happens to some women and to supplement with calcium at that time, so I started doing that.</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Does anyone else deal with this?  What do you do?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>I've also tried pumping whenever he goes down for a nap.  </p>
<p>I'm starting to worry because I have no back up left in the freezer.</p>

<p>You should take a calcium / magnesium supplement --- 1500 mg Cal / 750 mg Mag is the most effective.  More info here:</p>

<div> The supplement should be 1500 calcium/750 magnesium but can be as low as 500 calcium/250 magnesium (the higher the dosage the more effective and quicker the results). It should be a combination pill. This much calcium should never be taken alone.</div>
