Dear anon,
How old is your baby? The American Academy of Pediatrics now recommends breastfeeding AT LEAST until 1 year. If you are having problems with milk supply, you can definitely benefit from a breast pump which will help with milk production and storage.

Do you know if there is a La Leche league in your area? You can call 1-800-LALECHE to find out. La Leche League's sole purpose is to support women in their desire to breastfeed.

Good Luck-- This website is an excellent source for breastfeeding mommies:
