Anyway, Fenugreek and Blessed Thistle. My milk still isn't returning like it should. I make Hazel nurse and nurse before I consider a bottle, but in the end she still has 5 or 6 bottles a day. I tried pumping in between feedings, but that's exhausting (Mooo) and disappointing, as I am only getting ONE ounce after 20 minutes of pumping. I used to get 4 ounces in ten minutes. Soy formula is expensive and constipates Hazel. I asked a friend who is a professional breastfeeder (hehehe, really! Remember the facebook nurse in? She was on the news. Just this past month, the Target Nurse in, she was there.) and she refered me to kellymom.com which has great advice. Only trouble is I'm afraid to take Hazel off the bottle all together and have a grumpy fussy baby for a few days. But as we're at the bottom of another can, should I just do it? Go cold turkey on the bottle and make her continue nursing up my milk supply? I admit I fear my milk will never come back in full enough to feed her. And that's why I'm taking fenugreek now To kind of give me the extra reassurance that my body can do this. A single bottle of it should be enough to get my milk supply up for sure. At least that's my thought process. And I've now convinced myself to return the new canister of formula and deal with a fussy baby for a few days. So if I blog even less and don't want to answer the phone, it'll be due to a lack of sleep and trying to stay sane via my b vitamins rather than caffiene.
And that's that.
Just talked to Mr. Man and he's going to go get our potatoes (and now butternut squash and ears of popcorn as well). He's very willing due to the hope that he knows the guy since the guy is from Herriman and that city only recently got their own high school, so maybe he went to high school with the guy.
And here is a random picture just for the sake of having a picture and cause Mr. Man figured out how to get the scanner to work so I could post it on facebook......
