  • you arent supposed to be on that pill! it reduces your milk, talk to your dr about the 'mini pill'

  • If you're taking the combination pill with estrogen, STOP. It's a known supply killer. The progesterone-only mini-pill is safe, but SOME moms have problmes with that as well.

    You may or may not get your period in any event.

    And be warned that the more you bottle feed, the less milk you will have. Put baby to breast and LET baby get MAD. That boosts supply like nothing else can.
