Reduced Milk Production

I am breastfeeding my 5 month old and over the past week my milk production has decreased by almost 50%. I have been sick with a sinus infection, but other than that nothing has changed. I work full time, so I pump at work, but I have remained on the same pumping schedule. I was wondering if the sinus infection could be causing this and if so will my milk production go back to normal once I am well. Or...does anyone know any "tricks" to help increase milk production? I did not have this issue occur with any of my other children.

I am breastfeeding and have heard that decongestants tend to dry you up. Does anyone know of anything I can do to help this stuffy nose without taking meds?

I also rented a scale to see how much he's...
