All the best!

    thanks, I've tried the ABA (and love love love ABA) but of course they can't provide medical advice, and doctors generally don't know much about breastfeeding, let alone non-newborn bfing, so I really don't know what to do. I really need to see a medical person who is also a BC. I don't know if I want to take supply increasing meds all month to fix a problem that only happens 4 - 5 days a month, since I'd probably end up with over supply the rest of the time (I had oversupply and needed to block feed for the first 6 months or so)

    Thanks for the advice
