Re: Now a supply issue -WHAT ELSE?!

sounds like he is getting more than enough at each feed if he is gaining 2-4oz per feed. some babies are slow gainers. look for wet and poopy diapers instead of weight gain.
if you are still worried about your supply, drink tons of mothers milk tea (i use 2-3 bags per cup and let it steep for 30 minutes) eat oats, either cheerios or oatmeal for breakfast, and oatmeal cookies as an afternoon snack, and if you are still concerned after a week of that, maybe try some herbs. the lactation blend by vitanica is a great one. it has lots of great galactagogues, like fennel, fennugreek, blessed thistle, alfalfa, goats rue, etc.
drink to thirst, usually one large glass per nursing, plus more if you feel you need it.
