Increased lacation: You can increase your milk supply by nursing or pumping more frequently, staying well hydrated and rested, and by supplementing your diet with the herb fenugreek. Occassionally, doctors will prescribe Reglan, which in some people will stimulate or enhance lactation. Review the possible side effects of this drug first to make sure the benefit is worth the risk. ...Read more

Chill out!: Milk production is supply and demand, so the less demand you put on it, the less you will make. Just like when you started it took a couple of days to come in, it's going to take a couple of days to ease away.

Could my milk be drying up if I am still breastfeeding?

Could my milk be drying up if I am still breastfeeding?

Yes: Your milk supply is dependent upon the frequency of nursing, and complete emptying of the breasts.
