    Talking Re: update!

    JUst this morning alone i got 7oz! Last night i drank some of the nursing moms tea made by yogiteas last night before bed. I used 2 teabags(it says you can) in 1cup with some honey. I think that helped this mornings pump. I remember someone saying that there am pump wasent always the same some days more and some less. I found that some days i could get out 5 oz and some 5 1/2oz but i think that having 7oz this morning is a good indacator that i am making more. I usually keep track every few days to see if i am making more. I think 40mg 3x's a day and 3fenugreek and 3blessed thistle and drinking nursing moms tea is helping me produce so much. (and for the record, sometimes i forget to take my fen and bles 3xs a day some times its only 2xs)
    Dont get me wrong i have days that i dont produce as much as the day before and days i have no increase just the same ol same ol.
    There are some days a dread pumping and just wish that she would latch on and think it would all be easier.
    But i am determind to get her back to bm and no formula.
    I am telling you all this so that new people and people just starting out will see my progress and also understand that when you level off on milk production that it may increase in a few days like it did me. I know i should have kept a day to day guide insted of slacking off and not counting, it help to see you increaseing on paper as well. and helps you not to second guess yourself.

    I hope that by me posting all my numbers and progress that it will help someone else.

    I posted last night but somehow it got lost

    After my last pump last night i counted and then recounted a few times just to make sure i was counting right and guess how much i counted. 18 1/2 oz

    I couldnt believe it!

    I was so excited!!

    and this morning when i woke up both breasts were leaking!! Sometimes my left one(my naturally smaller one) is full and leaky but this morning my right one was leaking and full

    who would have thought someone would be excited about leaky breasts
