Re: Should everyone use galactogogues?
And by extension, "bigger baby" is not the same as "healthier baby"! I know it's tough when you're getting comments from your pediatrician/family/friends/strangers on the street- "Oh, she/he is so tiny! Are you, you know, feeding him/her enough?" But it all switches around later in childhood. All of a sudden, you get congratulated on having a smaller or slenderer child, because you have somehow managed to preserve him/her from the epidemic of childhood obesity!
"Most milk possible" does not mean "best milk possible" or "best growth possible."
I had oversupply with baby number 2, and I am so glad I stayed away from galactogogues! My poor LO was already struggling with fast letdowns and having bloody poops due to lactose overload- I can't imagine that more milk would have improved that situation!
Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"
