Hi Gem, sorry to hear it's not been working out for you and Isaac Sad Have a look at this page on the kellymom site, there's a long list of things at the bottom of the page that you can try to help re-establish your supply. Good luck!

Sorry to hear youve been struggling. I know it it possible to regain your milk supply , there is a thread i remember reading on here where one girl did it sucessfully. Lots of luck with it xxxx
If I remember rightly, lots of skin to skin contact and plenty of suckling is the key!
