Re: Not sure what else to do

Do you switch sides? With this lo I have to switch sides frequently or I don't have enough milk for him. Make sure you breastfeed before supplementing as that can contribute to supply issues. Make sure you are relaxed and drinking enough. Also dieting and trying to lose weight can affect milk supply. I don't know if you were but since it is common for new mamas to want to lose that baby weight I thought to mention it. Another thing that can affect supply I have been told are cold meds. I'm not sure but think it is the antihistamines that cause you to dry out so I would think allergy meds would also be a problem.
