Dried up? Sorry, couldn't resist. Some women just don't produce enough milk. You may need to supplement with formula. I think there is also a natural remedy (tea or something) that helps. I'm not sure about the beer. I heard that, but also heard it's a myth. I didn't notice much difference. I didn't have the problem of not being able to produce, I just didn't produce enough to pump (maybe 1oz in 45min if I was lucky...total from both). I also heard that was common. I get jealous when I hear women can get 8oz in a sitting. As the mom above mentioned, definitely check out one of the breastfeeding groups (they are great) also check out WWW.LLLI.ORG or Kellymom.com (I think that's the site).
