My daughter is 10 weeks old and I've been struggling with low supply from the start. I've been to an LC and read a lot. Thanks to everyone on the LS thread, as I've learned so much there! As I try to catch up, I've been supplementing with Earth's Best, which I get at Whole Foods. I found out recently that that brand uses BPA in the their packaging (small article in Mothering Magazine). I do so much to keep BPA from my daughter - this did not please me!! What's more, I can't seem to find an organic formula that doesn't use this dangerous plastic. I asked my husband to pick up the largest can of powdered organic Similac that he could find (Similac only uses BPA in the lid and bottom), then found a NYTimes article about how that is a sweetened formula containing cane sugar! This is crazy! I'm thinking of asking a German friend to ship me something from the EU! Anyone know of a solution?

Thanks!
