Read the other replies, but didn't see it mentioned- How much water are you drinking? You should be drinking to thirst. It is a common misconception that drinking tons of water will increase your supply. If you are dehydrated and have low supply because of that- then, yes, drinking water will help- but if you are not dehydrated, then it probably won't help. Drinking too much water can actually result in decreased milk supply!

I experienced this first hand with my ds!
