    Default 8:00 pm feeding

    My LO has a very good appetite but for it seems forever I never have enough milk for her last feeding at 8:00 pm, why is this? And if there is any thing that I can do to have more at night? I am taking fenegreek seed pills to help but it doesn't seem to work very good. Should I take it at a certain time of day maybe? Any advice would really help. Thanks.

    I am sorry that you feel like you dont have enough milk. I am not sure about how and when you should use the fenegreek seed pills. I had a thought tho, do you think that your LO wants to eat more at 8 or maybe just suckle? Maybe its a comfort thing at that time of night.

    She is hungry, she has never really been a suckler. She want to eat and be done, she has always been like this. I've hear that at night the hormone in your body that produces milk is at its lowest, but i just done know what to do because she is still so hungry. Dearing the day it is fine though, just her last feeding.

    aw, sorry mama try this site and see if it answers any of your thoughts. All I can really think is, keep her at the breast as long as she wants, try not to take her off, lt her lead, KWIM?
