  • You could ask your doctor for an RX. I can't remember what its called, but I had to use it when I had my daughter(now 2). It works very well.

  • Eat oatmeal, drink mother's milk tea, take fenugreek, eat well (like you did when you were pregnant) and drink plenty of water. But the most important thing is to nurse, nurse, nurse, as often as possible, and do not pump or use formula if that is at all possible (although you can pump between feedings to stimulate your supply, just try to avoid pumping instead of nursing). You might want to contact a lactation consultant.
