Thankyou, missie_mack for elaborating on my point that engorgement is only a problem if you make milk.
As NanaK mentioned, fenugreek can boost supply for some women, but it may also do sod all. Same for motillium, oats, and ABA counsellors. All worth a try though.

Bf is hard especially with no support. But yes it's hard to say whether you would have had supply issues, bf when you first have bub is the hardest, trying to get baby to latch, the pain, bringing in milk (which doesn't happen for a while for some) trying to pump out milk/colostrum.
But you definately have to be bfeeding bub round the clock to bring milk in, it's hard work when they're newbies and takes maybe 3months in my case more to get some kind of supply going.
