    Question What lowers your supply?

    I know y'all have talked about foods/vitamins,etc. that can increase your supply, but what foods/drinks can lower it (besides the obvious- like stress)?

    Thanks!

    The only foods I have heard of as being milk-decreasers are sage, peppermint, and cabbage. (Although I think the cabbage has to be applied externally for it to have an effect.)

    Too much fennel can adversely effect supply as well. But just the right amount of fennel can actually help....
