Poppet and I had started a successful breast feeding relationship. However, I've developed some complications 5 days post partum that led to another two day hospitalization. I was diagnosed with endometritis and a staph infection. As a result, I've been put on some very aggressive antibiotics, that are unsafe for my baby girl. It is my intent to resume breast feeding as soon as it is safe to do so. For now I am pumping and dumping, and Poppet is being formula fed for the next ten-12 days. She's only a week old today so I didn't have much of a supply stored up yet.

My question is, what is the best way that you ladies have found to not only maintain supply but also increase it to meet growing baby's demands? I have celiac disease so oatmeal and brewers yeast are things that I have to avoid for my own health and we won't be able to test Poppet until later to see if she is also a carrier. Thanks in advance ladies!
