XP: Apple Juice is upping my supply!!!

Reposting from Breastfeeding board... :o) Y'all, I couldn't believe how simple this was - it was so simple that it took a couple different trial and errors for me to actually believe it worked...I drank a couple cups of hot apple cider while tailgating in the cold for a football game last weekend. About 2 hours later while I was pumping, I pumped double what I normally pump! I didn't even link it to the apple cider until the other morning when I again got about 2 more ounces than usual and I had had hard apple cider the night before (that was the only thing out of the ordinary).I googled "apple juice and breast milk" and found only a few other message boards where moms basically said "am I crazy, or did apple juice just up my supply?"I've been mixing 1 part apple juice to 4 parts water all day everyday (to my normal water amount), and I get at least 1-2 ounces extra when I pump now! My boobs even feel full about 30 mins after I drink the juice/water mix. I am SO EXCITED!! I've tried EVERYTHING else to up my supply, and nothing else has made even a slight difference...who knew that apple juice was my saving grace?? :o

    Wow! That is awesome!

    ***Running to the store now to buy gallons of apple juice***

    Yes, this! Thanks for the suggestion!

     

    Same here! Are you drinking regular apple juice or are you sticking with the apple cider?  I just want to make sure I get the right stuff!!

    I am drinking regular apple juice mixed with water during the day, and then Michelob Ultra "Lite Cider" at night before bed (yummy in a cup of ice!). The regular apple cider is only good to me when it's warmed up, and that's too many calories! :o

    It tastes fine to me...I really really really love ice water, so it just adds a little flavoring. Plus apple juice has tons of sugar, and I'm trying to avoid that as much as I can ;o)

    Also, Michelob Ultra has a new "Lite Cider" that's good and is only 120 calories compared to the 200 in Woodchuck and others like that.

    Good luck, y'all!!
