My baby is 6 mths old and is on breastmilk , he eats rice cereal and some fruits now and again. But refuses the formula (enfamil Gold), however I believe that my Breastmilk is reducing as I pump for him during the day and Breastfeed exclusively at nights and at weekends.
Please advise me what I should do naturally to increase my supply as sometimes in the day I cannot produce more than 10 oz , . 5 oz in the morning , 10 durning the day..
I currently leave 4 bttls 5 oz each but he now needs more , but I cannot produce anymore. Please Help

"Drink plenty of fluids and increase your food intake. You can also drink a beer to help produce more milk." NOT TRUE. Drinking and/or eating more won't help unless you were severely dehydrated or starving to death. Beer is an old wives tale, alcohol can interfere with the letdown reflex making harder to get the milk out. Here are some links to info on pumping more milk at work: http://www.workandpump.com/boosters.htm
