MissHeidi does not know what she's talking about. It is not a common occurrence for women to just dry up out of the blue. There were wet nurses back in the day for children of women who were too "classy" to breastfeed and for babies with dead mothers. Not because there is an epidemic of women's milk just drying up for no apparent reason. Also, if there were alot of "babies in the early settler days who died because of this" (which I kind of doubt) it could most likely be attributed to poor nutrition and limited access to clean water. It is a fact that only 1-3% of women cannot exclusively breastfeed. If you are having a supply issue it can probably be dealt with fairly easily, especially since you have already established that your body is capable of producing milk.
