    So yesterday afternoon and all this morning my boobs feel empty and F has been on the boob constantly but really fussy and frustrated like he isn't getting much. He falls asleep then as soon as he wakes up he is sucking away at his hands frantically. What's going on, has my milk supply reduced? My boobs weren't even full this morning when I woke up.

    Any advice would be appreciated x

    Don't panic, it is virtually impossible for your milk to have disappeared over night.
    There are times when you will feel less full because your body is settling down and producing exactly what your LO needs, - 3months is a typical time for this.

    Trust your body. Sometimes LOs go through fussy stages - the sucking hands can be a developmental thing as well and completely unrelated to milk. X


    On my iPhone - so cant see tickers :(

    There have been a couple of times when I've felt like my boobs have deflated and I've thought that there can't possibly be any milk in them, and other times were they've been so full that I've squirted Alex in the face as soon as I've taken a boob out my bra :whistle:, but they always sort themselves out. I'm sure yours will settle themselves down again soon :)
