I am currently breast feeding & obsessed with it just like I was last go round. So of course it makes total sense to blog about it. If you are breast feeding & looking for ways to keep & increase your milk supply you have come to the right blog! Hope these suggestions help!
Eat / Drink
+ Oatmeal, not instant.
+ Lots of water.
+ Gatorade for electrolytes.
+ Mother's Milk tea. I tried this with Kenzie. I hated the taste though!
+ A beer. It is the barley in the beer. I have been drinking mine while I nurse or pump. & of course I only have one for the day. & not every day.
Pump / Nurse
+ Often. When it comes to pumping, pump in between feedings.
+ After shower. Crazy but after taking a shower & probably during, I leak milk. A LOT.
+ Offer/pump both boobs each time.
+ Skin to skin. Get that baby down to her/his diaper.
+ No stress. From what I have read, stress causes issues with producing milk. No beuno!
