Re: LOW milk supply.

Get to an IBCLC for good advice. Here's the IBCLC directory: http://www.ilca.org/i4a/pages/index.cfm?pageid=3337

Get a pre- and post feeding weight taken to see how much she takes in in an average nursing session. To do this, start her with a clean diaper, nurse, weigh with the same diaper, whether dirty or wet.

Have your DD evaluated for a tongue or lip tie. Have the IBCLC examine you for signs of insufficient glandular tissue or hypoplastic breasts. Could you have retained placenta? Have you ever had signs of PCOS?

Are you supplementing with an SNS at the breast?
