My dd been sleeping throughout the night since 3weeks of age... I would just express before feeding to keep the supply up. she is now 8 mths still.bf I still express in the morning I get about 80mls now and she now feed a just 3 times a day. Supply will continue until you stop. It's amazing what our body can do.

- Home, where my life lies waiting, silently, for me.
my sister 'did' tizzie, and had to supplement pretty much straight away, and had completely lost her supply after 6 months.

I have done this book with my boys and never had any issues with supply. With DS2 I did try the demand feeding and me settling him etc, he is now 9 months old it was a nightmare and I have gone back to this book. He is a big boy so I am still bf him in the morning, night and a dream feed but he is having a bottle mid morning and afternoon, as I have had to go back to work as he DID NOT WANT the bottle so that was tough trying to get him to take it.

Not in here to have a go, but also not pro-cc
my DD started sleeping through at 9 months and I lost my supply within days.

Has anyone done CC (tizzie hall) & kept their milk supply?
I started Tizzie when dd1 was about 5months and my supply was fine - BFd until she was 14-15months old.
I did however do a dream feed, and from memory would feed overnight again if she woke (usually just the once). I stopped the night feeds though at 8months as she just kept waking more often.

Mine dropped dramatically because I was trying to implement her routine too strictly. DS only ever catnapped so I was trying to resettle her after 45mins to get that 2 hour block of sleep without realising that she was hungry and needed to be fed. Feeding 4 hourly just didn't work. Now I'm expressing, on Motilium, getting her up throughout the night multiple times to feed, taking fenugreek, having acupuncture and doing everything I can to try and build my supply back up. I wish I'd just followed her lead and not worried about the routine. She's fallen into her own routine now of three hour long naps a day, plus good blocks of sleep overnight.
That said, I did follow the self-settling advice in the book and found the info on bedding and awake times to be useful.
