  3. Should i offer water in a sippy cup?

    So we've had low milk supply issues from the start and for that we use an SNS and i pump every 2 hours. He likes the boob and lately we've introduced water from one of our "adult" cups. I like it bc...

  9. Re: How can you tell when your LO is nursing for comfort or bc is hungry?

  11. Re: Has anyone tried goat's rue for low milks supply?

  12. Has anyone tried goat's rue for low milks supply?

    I've tried fenugreek, fennel and blessed thistle and none worked. What somewhat seems to work is beer. I hear goat's rue is given as a common galactagogue in france and it has great success. Has...

    Nope but it doesnt mean it wouldnt work for you. I'd check in with a Chinese or Indian herbalist. I've heard of Goat's Rue, Blessed Thistle, Oatmeal, Barley, Beer (the hops in it help, and i saw a...
