My twins turn 1 year old on Sunday. It has been a very long and uphill battle but we are still nursing! My goal from the beginning has been at least 14 to 16 months. In the last two weeks, I have struggled to pump enough milk during the day to offer both babies their 2 bottles at daycare. They each take 2 4 oz. bottles every day and I also nurse them at noon.
They have been sleeping through the night for months, but I get up every night to pump. I had been getting enough during the day at work for them and decided to start sleeping through the night myself. Big mistake #1! I was also taking more milk plus, fenugreek and drinking mother's milk tea and eating oatmeal every morning.
I decided not to continue the more milk plus when I ran out last time. Big mistake #2!
Within a week, I have depleted my freezer stash to almost nothing. I have restarted getting up at night and taking the more milk plus for over a week now. Nothing has seemed to help. What more can I do?
