How much milk do you drink? WOW
 
Okay, so I have had supply issues/very slow weight gain issues. I went to my GP to talk about it and this is what she asked me!! I sat there dumbfounded, "umm, none, I don't like milk" was my answer. Why am I so slow on my feet these days! :banghead: My ob and pedi are soooooo bf supportive that I was in shock and amazement she asked this question. Really? So if I drink milk I will have more milk? WOW. Still dumbfounded. Guess I will take the much longer trip to my OB.

THANK you. You don't have to drink milk to make more milk, but drinking more water (liquids in general) will do a lot. There's lots of other things you can do too.

I know...I am so slow on my feet these days. It was the oddest experience. The PA looked at me and said, "Well, maybe you are drying up" with a shrug. He is only 13 weeks old.

The dr also kept saying "Breastfeeding is best, you really should do it"
me: "that is why I am here, my son hasn't been gaining weight properly and we are trying to figure out the problem"
her: "your milk hasn't come in yet?"
me: "uhh, no, my milk came in, I think the supply is just not enough"
her: "you really should breastfeed"
:banghead: :banghead: :banghead: :banghead:

Not going back to that place, but still in shock and amzement.

For me the more water I drank the more milk would come it, or any liquid really, except watch things with caffeine, they are diuretics which can cause dehydration.

Also there are a lot of different mother's milk teas that are supposed to help. Contacting the LLL is a very good idea. :thumbsup:
