DOES YOUR PERIOD DECREASE YOUR MILK SUPPLY?
It is common to have a drop in supply at certain points in your cycle, often from mid-cycle to around the time of your period.
It can also be less comfortable to breastfeeding at this time.
This is due to the hormonal changes and is only temporary.
A daily dose of 500 to 1,000 mg of a calcium and magnesium supplement from the middle of your cycle through the first three days of your period may help minimize any drop in supply.
