Hypothesis, experiment and results!

Hypothesis: diagnosis of low milk supply; pumping after every nursing session for one week, plus increasing water intake, upping calcium and protein, adding More Milk Plus and Mother's Tea should increase milk supply (and therefore end the need for supplemental bottles of BM!)

Experiment: on day 4 of pumping, taking 1-2 Tbsp brewer's yeast, 4 pills of More Milk Plus and1,000mg calcium, and prenatal vitamins daily. increased protein in diet, making sure to drink lots of water!

This morning's pump after she nursed was biggest yet at 3 oz! She actively nursed the whole time latched, and basically refused any more milk after taking 1/2oz via bottle!!!

Note: must do weighed feeding to prove to E that it's beginning to work and she'll be soon getting all she needs directly from the boob..


  1. More Milk Plus helped my supply immensely! I highly recommend it!

    Go boobs! :-)

  2. I love this update SO MUCH right now!!! Keep up the hard work, you're kicking booty!

  3. I've been lurking, I swear! Just too busy to comment, but I'm gonna have to remember all of this - I had supply issues with Jordan and am going to BF again (if we are lucky enough to have another!). Oh, and I'm waiting for more baby pictures!!!
