Last week I had some issues with painful nursing and I had to take some time off from nursing to let myself heal. I have twin, one year old boys. Before our break, we were nursing six to eight times a day, plus on demand as needed. During the break we took a thirty six our latch break, then returned to nursing for three sessions a day. We are now back up to at least six sessions, plus on demand. My issue is that I don't feel like I'm producing as much milk as I was before the break and I'd like to try something to increase my supply.
I have been looking into Fenugreek. I'd love to hear from anyone who has used it and thought that it was beneficial. I've heard that oatmeal can increase supply as well- is there anything to that claim?
I'm also wondering if it would be worth while to wake the babies up in the middle of the night for a nursing session. They have been sleeping through the night and were basically night weaned, so the thought of intentionally waking myself up and them is a bit daunting. Thoughts?
