Depends: But if you have been breast feeding for awhile then more than likely your body is taking its natural way of ceasing Breast milk production. See your obgyn or endocrinologist

Yes. there are: There are both natural substances and some meds that may possibly boost your supply. Google the word "galactogogue" for long lists of potentially helpful substances. Also, and very important, RELAX! The anxiety/stress you are feeling regarding this can affect supply as well.
