Re: low milk supply - have to supplement with formula
Thinking that you need to wait for your breasts to "fill up" is one of the most common breastfeeding management errors. The breast is never really empty because milk is always being made. The emptier the breast gets, the faster milk is made to replace what is being taken out. And conversely, the more full the breast gets, the slower milk is made to replace. So as long as a baby is allowed to nurse on demand, that baby should be able to get milk out of even an "empty" breast. Maybe the milk won't come out as fast as baby likes, but if she is allowed unrestricted access to the breast she will eventually get her needs met.
