Actually, my period finally came when Shern was almost 8 months old. During that time, my milk supply did decrease for a short period because of the hormonal changes. After a week or two, my milk supply was back to normal
However, for the past 2-3 weeks, my milk supply has been dwindling down drastically. I am not sure what happened. I have been expressing my milk as usual, every 3-4 hourly. Shern is still suckling direct at night and in the wee hours of the morning.
Now, after 6 hours or more, I can only achieve around 4oz or sometimes even less than that. I also have not been experiencing any letdown since then, which explains the dwindling milk supply.
Well, I guess my time is almost up. My milk ducts may be drying up slowly.
I am still expressing about 2-3 times during the day. And I still have around 100 bottles of EBM stored up in the freezer. This can lasts Shern for another 2 months or so.
Well, I will let nature takes its course. For now, I will still express 'til the right time comes.
