    apart from the obvious,the more baby takes the more milk will be produced? I don't want to run out when I'm back at school and wondered if there's something you can take to increase supply....I thought I heard of some herbal tablet :think: but i could be talking rubbish

    i think the herb ur on about is probably fenugreek, i heard that too.
    i think the main thing is the more u use ur boobs the more milk they make, so if u cant feed willow coz ur at school or wherever perhaps u can express? someone on here told me employers by law hav to give nursing mothers time off to express, in a suitable environment (not the toilets!) im sure it must be the same for schools and colleges. i think it was xena who told me that, ill try to find the thread but idk if i can remember where it was :doh:
