Breast Feeding and Dieting (Weight Watchers)

Hi.

I have a 9 week old DD who is EBF. The last few days I have noticed that my breasts aren't feeling as full as usual and have not been able to express the usual volume following the morning and evening feeds (3fl oz each time instead of 4 fl oz, it is taking longer to get this volume too). My breasts are also leaking less between feeds.

I'm wondering if this is just my supply finally settling down or if it has anything to do with the diet I started last week. I am following the WW plan and using extra points as per their guidelines for nursing mums. I'm not feeling hungry and am eating healthily.

It may just be a coincidence, but would welcome other people's experiences.

TIA

Sounds very normal, just your supply settling. I wouldn't think it's anything to do with weight watchers.
