    Could have been simply the increase of 12 oz a day of liquid

    An increase of liquid is never a bad thing for a nursing mama But I am glad something worked for the OP...

    I've never heard of that. Interesting! I guess the only caution would be not to go overboard and cause carotenemia.

    I would urge you NOT to pump before feeding as this can cause the problem to become worse, not better.

    Is there a reason that you're hoping to have more than enough milk?
