I realize you may have addressed this already, but by my calculations, these
babies have just hit a growth spurt--could this be a factor? I usually warn
mothers ahead of time that at about 6 weeks, they may suddenly feel as if
they " have no milk" and that they should not be fooled by this into
supplementing vs allowing unrestricted access to build supply.
