What the heck. I woke up yesterday and my boobs had shrunk to about half the size they were the day before. They are no longer firm, they’re soft like “normal” boobs. I am not producing as much milk at all. Maybe half of what it was. Is this the breast feeding kind of “normalizing?” I know they won’t be engorged and hard forever, but this is seriously freaking me out. I’m pumping after feeding, now, and I am barely getting anything out. I have no idea what happened. Two days ago, I’d hook up to the pump and between both boobs I’d fill the bottle in five minutes. Last night, I got half a bottle in twenty minutes. This is completely freaking me out. Breast feeding is THE most important thing to me. I have a call in to the lactation consultant to try to figure something out. Any words of wisdom to help me not have a coronary??
I started taking Macrobid for the UTI after okaying it with my OB and Knox’s pediatrician… do you think this could have done something?
