^that was good advice, not much else to add but lots and lots of hugs. Breastfeeding is supply and demand, so the more you supplement, the less you will make. I know my local La Leche suggested using a Supplemental Nursing System, which allows you to supplement while the baby is on the breast and suckling at the nipple, so they are getting the supplement while also stimulating your breasts to make more milk. Also, comfort nursing instead of using a pacifier is good too, the more stimulation the baby can do at the breast the more milk you will make. And definitely check with the experts (like in the previous) post about what medicines are ok, because most truly are safe. Hang in there, and KUP
