  • I would suggest seeing an IBCLC to check baby for tongue or lip tie, as these are often the cause of low supply. Also if bub is having plenty of wet nappies and weight gain you don’t have supply issues. If you do need to increase supply, feed and pump often. Fenugreek and lactation cookies can also help Erin
