Congratulations on your son.  Know that things do get easier as time goes on.  I pumped exclusively for Molly for 11 months.  My milk supply was low but there.  I think the exhaustion, not taking care of myself, not taking enough liquids and the overall depression at the diagnosis decreased my supply.  If you are nursing at all, you should be able to maintain your supply if you take care of yourself (which is hard to do under the best of circumstances when you have a newborn).   Good luck!
