In brief: No

Many things can affect milk supply, but I have not seen any evidence that age is related.
Eating healthy foods, drinking a lot of water, sleep, and making sure you are your healthiest all can help. If you have trouble with your supply, be sure to do regular weight checks to be sure baby is growing well.
