Here is something AMAZING that I ran into AFTER finishing exclusively pumping for 9th child....if only I had seen it sooner!http://greenlitebites.com/2011/06/02/breast-milk-storage/
The 9th child?! You are super Mom!! ;o) I actually used a method VERY similar to this and completely forgot to mention it in my post! I'm thinking about following up my pumping post with more storage tips and I'll definitely include this link. Thanks for sharing!
I have a 3 months old baby girl and i have been trying to increase my milk production but to no avail. I have been breast feeding and pumping at the same time since the beginning. On her first month, we give her supplement formula since i was not producing enough milk. Usually when i pump early in the morning with one breast i can only get 2.5-3 oz milk while she is nursing with the other one. 4 days ago i have tried Fenugreek and the Mother's Milk tea, my milk production decreases 2.5 oz for both breast. Does it happen like that in the beginning with Fenugreek? Im so worried and stress out right now that my milk production will stop specially that Im going back to work at the end of November. What else should i do, please HELP me. Thank you so much.
Hi Hazel, sorry about all your troubles! No, I did not experience a decrease in my supply when I started Fenugreek...not sure what that's all about.
