    I'm not sure if those pills you take while bfing will affect my baby or the milk supply. Anyone?

    While breastfeeding the usual birth control pills can harm your supply, so you should be taking the mini pill. I'm no doctor so I can't tell you the exact science behind it all, but I'm sure if you google it you will get better answers ;)

    the mini pill won't have any effect on your supply or the baby. However, there are many stories that suggest the mini pill isn't very effective as birth control, and the hormones drove me crazy so I had to stop taking it!
