  • please drop by the Breastfeeding Moms group. On the Resources Forum you will find a sticky post titled "How To Increase Supply." EVERY trick known to woman is there.

    Most inportant thing? Put baby to breast. If you're changing six dipes a day, then your supply is fine.

  • Those pills can dry you up. You should switch to the mini-pill. It's the only one thats compatible with breastfeeding.
