The decrease in pumping output is propbably just your supply adjusting and regulating down to LO’s needs and is really common at the twelve week mark. Is there any particular reason apart from sttn that you’re pumping? As long as your LO is still gaining weight and having plenty of outputs then it sound’s like you’re doing great!

Yep! Supply regulating. It sucks, because after this happened to me, I went from being able to pump 4-5 oz per breast each time to only 1 oz. Which meant if DH and I wanted to go out on a Saturday night, I had to basically spend all week pumping to get enough to leave him for 2 bottles 🙁

Great article about it here: http://kellymom.com/bf/got-milk/supply-worries/breast-fullness/
