Sufficient for the day is its own trouble
- Jesus (Matthew 6:34) 


  1. Hey I'm not sure how much breastfeeding is important to you, but if it's a milk supply issue you can try taking capsules of fenugreek or blessed thistle.

    Dr. Jack Neuman recommends it (one of the best breastfeeding experts in the world). My friend's baby was loosing weight and when she took the fenugreek capsules, she didn't have any problems thereafter!


    Just a thought :)

  2. Thanks Karen!!
    I will definitely check that out. With Lily tried every Le Leche and doctor recommended trick to increase my supply and nothing worked- short
    Of taking a medication my doc recommended as the side effects were a rush we weren't willing to take. I never heard of this natural suppliment though!
    I'm willing to try anything though- within the realm of reason.

    Breastfeeding and bottle feeding (I did them simultaneously for 5 months) did teach me a lot though. I no longer cling to certain cliches like Breast-is-Best (Lily was thriving on formula and never got sick), pr that it's the only way to establish a deep bond with your babe (lies! Bottle feeding can be very unifying- as can 100 other things!), but I want to breast feed without formula as long as I can...

    Honestly, it's mostly bc breastfeeding is FREE and formula is around $20/week or $80/month :)
