What are the benefits of membership?
I have a 6 month old. I have started working a full time job and I am worried because I feel like it I can't pump enough milk like I use to, could it be my breast pump or am i lacking something in my diet?
There shouldn't be anything in your diet that decreases your milk. If you are not drinking enough, that could decrease it. Most likely, it is the lack of stimulation from your baby. Being away from your baby forty hours a week makes it tough to keep up supply. Try to pump as often as you can and nurse frequently when you are at home. Your OB or LC should be able to help you with additional options, too.
