For any of the moms who have stated that their milk "dried up"... how did you know this had happened? Was it a diagnosis or did it just seem like your child was unsatisfied. I always see that phrase and never quite understood the basis. With my first I thought my milk was insufficient after 2 months and my mother (who had nursed 5) said that was the way sometimes and I had to nurse more often and not supplement. I went on to nurse 4 kids to nearly 2 years old each on her advice and never supplemented. I am aware that it is possible for the milk to not 'come in' or be insufficient even with increased nursing so I am wondering if it's a doctor's words or the assumption of the mom. Not intending to offend, just trying to understand.
