1 update 6-1-12: How do I increase breast milk supply?
Hi Ladies. Breastmilk supply seems to be steady now. There are ups and downs but I do notice that with rest, mood, hydration, caloric intake, Joseph's heath, life in general all plays a role.
The Fenugreek does make me smell like a PANCAKE! I actually do not mind it, lol.
I just started drinking the organic mother's milk tea. I like it. I add one splenda to my drink and I am good to go. I will have to let you know if I see results in increase in a couple of days.
Thank you all for your support HUGS....pic of Joseph icluded in post!!! BREAST MILK HAS DONE MY BOY GOOD!!!!!!!!
Thank you ladies for your advice! I have increased my water and caloric intake. I am drinking water all the time.
Over this past weekend I got in some extra rest.
I am going to pump while at the NICU and increase my pumping through out the day. I also have to be relaxed when pumping.
I may kust get me a beer every now and again...plus some oatmeal.
As for the supplement...begins with an f....i need to take enough to smell like a pancake....super awesome smell but i will work with the other methods first :-)
The mothers milk/tea, how does it taste?
I am also working with lactation consultant! She is awesome and a life saver (or nipple saver!)
Once again thank you ladies!!!
Side note. My son is three weeks old and I held him for the first time today. My boys motivate me to want so much from life <3
How do I increase breast milk supply? My right breast seems to produce more than my left, but supply seems low.
I am only pumping due to my son being in NICU.
