As I understand it, milk production is mostly on a supply and demand basis, but the amount of prolactin receptors also dictates supply, and the more you feed in the early days/weeks the more prolactin receptor sites are made. Anyone know if this resets between pregnancies and breastfeeding? J fed very poorly at first, and I whilst he tracked his curve fine through exclusively bf, I never felt like I had a great supply, I'd like a bit more this time.
