    I don't know why I didn't think to let you know about this syrup hat increases your milk supply.
    Get it from health food shop or Boots maybe. It's called "Weleda Blackthorn Elixir". A natural product for during pregnancy and BF. I'm using it and got a recipe with it yesterday for "Jungle Juice". Will send it later - typing with one hand at the mo!!
    BF now - must go.

    It's brilliant - try the recipe that i'll post later. Here in SA, people swear by it and it's in every pregnancy magazine.
    You can drink it as is, which is what i've been doing. Also acts as a toic for when ur feeling crap!!

    Jungle Juice... for increasing breastmilk and energy levels!

    2 litre redbush tea or water (redbush tea from Tesco/Sainsbury's)
    1 litre cloudy apple juice/berry juice
    1 sachet Dioralyte (re-hidrating powder)
    2 Vitamin C tablets (the ones you dissolve in water and fizzes)
    60ml Schlehen Blackthorn Elixir (made by Weleda)

    Mix all together and drink within 2 days - continue to make new batches and store in fridge. I also drink this hot - LOVELY stuff and really does make a difference.
    Hope it works for you!
