An Update on Dairy, Inc.

First of all, thank you all so much for the wonderful response to my last post about our nursing issues. The comments, emails, and Facebook messages are so appreciated! Since I last wrote about the little lady not getting enough to eat, we've made a few changes. I upped my water intake until I felt like a fish and I've made it a point to pump more frequently. Unfortunately, that doesn't seem to be enough on its own so we'll be starting a Fenugreek regimen as soon as I can get my hands on some supplements.

On a side note, has anyone else noticed that those particular supplements are darn near impossible to buy at any normal store? Let's just say that my never-ending passion for anything related to Target has been tarnished. What a tragedy. (I would say that my husband shares my disappointment, but since a large portion of his paycheck goes straight to that red and white bullseye every month, I think he's secretly rejoicing.)

So as we continue to Christmas ourselves silly over the next few days, rest assured that I will be thinking positive thoughts and mooing my way through the days and nights until I find a use for my nursing bras once again.

  1. GNC usually has Fenugreek, that's where we got ours. Took me a couple weeks to get my supply up with water, double pumping and oatmeal... Good luck! I'll be mooing with yah... :-)

  2. I get mine from the health food store. My husband once commented that we spend so much at Target we should have his check directly diposited there. Boys!

  3. Ditto GNC on the fenugreek! That's where my husband picked up mine. The salesguy said to him "uh, do you know what these are for?"

  6. Hi Alyssa...just to let you know...i had trouble with milk as well and have used fenugreek and the tea i think called mothers milk. You need ALOT of pills of fenugreek...i think i was taking 9 a day. My problem would be it would kick in overnight and would cause clogged ducts..horrible! Just an fyi. The tea i did a few times...taste is bad so i didnt stick with it. Good luck!
