Re: Can low supply be a genetic issue?

I think one of the main reasons mothers had "low supply" years ago was due to misinformation. Breastfeeding was not the norm for the past few generations so mothers had expectations based on what formula fed babies would eat. I know that in my mother's generation demand feeding was not encouraged so therefore supply would suffer. Also, babies and moms were separated at birth which affected early nursing.
