I just found out that I am pregnant with my 2nd baby (Hooray! After 7 months of TTC!) -- With my first, I definitely had some supply issues with my breastmilk.. My right breast seemed to do just fine (although the milk was nearly clear -- no fat?), but my left breast produced practically nothing. Now this pregnancy, my right breast is starting to change a bit (veins are more visible, breast seems full, tender, nipple changes), but the left is not doing any of the same things! I would like to have a more successful nursing experience with baby #2!
I have heard that there are ways to increase the glandular tissue (which may also increase the milk fat as well?? (it took my daughter nearly 3 months to get up to 9 lbs...she would born 8lbs 5oz!)). I've read a little bit about taking alfalfa, but there are so many mixed reviews on whether or not it is safe to take during pregnancy. Does anyone have any personal experience with this? Or have any more information? Or other suggestions of what may help?
