    Maya has been off her food after she had her first vaccine yesterday. Now, I know this is normal but I'm too scared my milk supply will go down! I had been struggling a lot with breastfeeding, juggling between expressing, breastfeeding and formula and these last couple of weeks I've been exclusively breastfeeding and tried really hard to make my supply go up and make sure she is getting as much as she needs (she's feeding more or less every 3 hours (on demand) and is very happy and content) but now with the vaccine she doesn't want to feed, I put her every 3 hours but she is clearly not feeding (not as much that is) and my breasts feel heavy and full. I'm sure she will go back to her normal feeding schedule but I'm scared that my milk supply will be affected! Do you think two days can affect my milk supply? :(

    I'd try and express some off to make sure your breasts are still being stimulated.
