    Barley is also supposed to help increase your milk. Worth a try.
  13. Re: OS, OALD, Fore-Hind imbalance w/3.5 mo old?

    Don't give up! I think it is possible to be successful bfing and use the pump sometimes. I have been struggling with some of the same questions since my twins started sleeping longer and I get very...

  16. Re: Who on here is a SAHM that pumps and stores?

    Wow, extra milk!?! I have twins so anything I do pump gets used up pretty quick. I also got sick and almost had to stop bfing for a while. I wished that I had a store in the freezer. Sounds like...
