Re: birth controll affecting production...Help!
Keep nursing on demand and your milk supply will rebound. Keep an eye on the wet diapers, as long as you get 5-6 per day you don't need to supplement. You can also try eating oatmeal to see if that gives you a little boost.
Breastfeeding alone is not reliable birth control, since different women have their fertility return at different times, despite their nursing patterns. But hormonal birth control does tend to affect the milk supply of a lot of women (not all women, and not all forms of birth control). I chose to use condoms rather than hormonal BC that could potentially harm my supply. What kind of BC were you on? Some have less of an effect than others.
