I'm not sure what happened but my supply has dropped. We are using 1 frozen bag a day now. I would like CB to get at least some breast milk everyday for the next 5 months. Do you think I should add in formula now so I can save the frozen for when/if I dry up? I am still making 20-25 oz a day but it seems like it keeps going down. Also, what kind of formula should I use?
thanks, erica

LOL, I just finished up with AF who made her just made her first appearance since DD was born. Maybe that explains it. I am going to start eating oatmeal again and squeeze in one more pump before bed to see if that helps. I hope something works. I gave DD a little formula in her bottle last night 1oz/4oz and she woke up with a rash this morning! The doc wants us to wait a few days and try again. Yikes! Thanks for the advice.
