Hi. Thanks for your post. I am definitely hanging in here. I started the Marmet Technique of hand expression in the shower and it really works! So, I'll keep that up, plus I'm still taking the fenugreek and the blessed thistle. I'd read that they either work or don't and you'll know in 3-5 days of taking them, but it's taking me longer to see an increase, but I see it slowly happening (the increase, that is). I'd always read before that natural herbal supplements always take 4-6 weeks to take affect, so it surprised me when I'd read that about 3-5 days. Strange...

I am now averaging about 5 to 7 oz a day (having to alternate pumping from breast to breast b/c one of my nipples is really sore and I need a lesser pump suction on that one). I am hopeful. My new goal is to try and get my son at least two 4 oz bottles of MY MILK a day; the rest I must supplement w/ Similac for now. Still, it's something....

Thanks so much for your good news!
