Is anyone still breast feeding? Have you noticed a change in supply? My LO is only 5m & he is completely refusing to breast feed. Idk if it is because I have no supply & he's frustrated. We have always had issues, he refused the BF the first 3m so I pumped. Frustrating situation.. *sigh*

In addition, you can contact your local LLL for support as well. More info on BF while pregnant:

We have a girl in our PR that has a TON of info to help with keeping up your supply. She's not pregnant (but she has worked up an oversupply and donates), but a lot of her suggestions can still help you. Note she has done a lot of research on this, so it can't hurt. Some topics are:
