will there b sudden less supply of milk? daily my breast used to get tight n milk used to fall.. but today it's not. is the any reason for it?

Hi Rekha. It changes. Keep expressing your milk.

In the beginning your body does not make milk. By two or three days the body suddenly makes a lot and mom feels heavy and engorged. This is because the body does not know how much to make. As the body learns the baby's needs the body adjusts and makes just enough hence mom does not feel heavy and tight anymore but this does not mean that there is no milk it just means that the demand and supply are now at an equilibrium which is positive. Relax.
