    Re: Foods to help increase milk supply?

    I've also read the Quinoa is good for increasing milk supply. I eat it about once a week and couldn't tell you if it helps my supply or not - but I always seem to have enough, even when TOM comes. ...

  7. Re: Sleeping too much? Not eating enough? Help!

    At 2-4 weeks my DS was sleeping 4-5 hours a night. Now I'm lucky if he sleeps 2 hours at a time. I say enjoy it while you can as long as she is gaining well... How I miss those days. :o

  10. Re: Upping daily food/caloric intake to increase milk flow

    No, but I'll be watching this thread for the advice. I usually have some cereal at 6:30 in the morning with the family, when we can all take turns with the baby and dinner at 6:00 to 7:00. If I'm...

    Re: Can't keep up

    He's not used to it? I'm having to supplement mine right now (not gaining enough). We tried Enfamil and he threw it up. We went to Similac Advance and he gagged on it, but has been keeping it down....

    Re: Estrogen and milk supply

    I had ppd with my first son. It started out with bad baby blues but then I had a depo provera shot at my 6 week appt and that really made things worse. So I am not an advocate of hormones...

    Re: endless nipple pain?

    I just noticed today that my nipples aren't as sore as they have been the past 2 months... DS is 8 weeks today. For 3 days I didn't pump, and I'm wondering if maybe I had the suction on too high and...
