@concreteangell I want to pile on to your question and ask if anyone has any lactation cookie recipes (or other lactation recipes!) they'd like to share?
@concreteangell Fenugreek as a supplement. Water. Your doctor can prescribe medication also, if needed.
Drink plenty of water. Dark beer now and again is supposed to help. I found a lactation cookie recipe online that was good, not sure if it helped a ton or not.The more you nurse, the more you make. I had supply issues with my twins, but we were supplementing and I was pumping and there was always a lot of pressure. With my youngest, she was always with me, nursed all the time, and even if it was just for comfort, I let her nurse and I never had supply issues with her.
Bringing your own boppy/bf pillow to the hospital: yay nor nay?
Anyone have experience with a newborn who was only happy when being held? What did you do? Just learn to live as a one armed person?
