  • I had the same prob with me DD. I just didnt produce. She was always hungry. I gave up on it after 6 weeks and my doc said there was nothing that could be done asside from what I was already doing. My DD Lost a lot of weight (before I knew I wasnt producing) But I am pregnant with #2 and going to try it again. I have heard they have pills out for it now but you can also drink non-alcoholic beer and get the production up. Its worth a shot.

  • growth spurt mama! the more you feed them and often the more you will produce milk. you can try mothers love drops to help increase your milk production. good luck!

  • rice cereal will not solve your problems, please do NOT feed your 3 month olds cereal. it will probably just constipate them and cause lots of misery for you. babies shouldnt have solids until at least 6 months. you more than likely have enough milk for the boys, they are just satisfying their sucking need on you, in other words, using you as a human pacifier. join a breastfeeding group on here and ask for more help and dont even think about supplementing with formula it will make your supply drop!!

  • Sounds like a growth spurt to me as well. Just keep nursing them on demand. No need to add anything to their diet. As long as they are peeing and pooping well, they are getting enough.

  • If you are worried about your supply then drink lots of water and eat oatmeal! You're an AWESOME mom for breastfeeding your twins, don't give up and don't give them solids!!! :~) If they are lucid, happy, and gaining weight (some bf babies gain slower than formula fed, that is OK) then don't worry at all!

    Extra kudos to you!!!!!!!
