I'm sure you know that, so do your best to remember that if they start putting the pressure on you. If, by chance, there is a supply issue, then the answer is to nurse more, not less. Good luck, I hope everything will go well and it won't be any problem!
My doc's actually really relaxed about everything, I don't know that he'll recommend supplementing, I just know I've had friends that happened to, but I also don't know he'll have to recommend anything, I'm just hoping she'll be back to what she's supposed to be by Friday.

Yeah, that's actually kinda of what my doc said on Friday, was that she was having wet and dirty diapers so there probably wasn't anything to worry about.
