How old is your baby? It may be that your mature milk has come in and you don't feel as full. Every women has that. If you baby is older and you think they are not getting enough just let them suck as much as they want and make sure you're drinking lots of water.

Some days my milk supply is not as high as other days. I pump because I work so some days I get 18 oz total the two times I pump a day and some days I only get 12-16. Depends on my diet too. The better I eat and drink, the more I seem to produce the NEXT day. You won't lose it. You can build your supply back up by eating good and pumping or nursing more. It won't just go away. I have ups and downs too. If you start skipping feedings and not pumping though, that will slow down your production but you can get it back by getting back on schedule. So don't worry too much about it.

Breastfeed often and eat well. Remember you need more calories b___stfeeding than you do when you are pregnant and also additional protein. You don't need to eat a ton but at least 1800-2200 calories of healthy foods.
