I always thought the word "lactation" was such a funny weird word.
I've not had any problems nursing. Not since my milk came in and the nugget has been able to get plenty to eat and has been gaining weight steadily after her near whole pound drop in her first 5 days of life.
My concerns are how much am I producing? I pump about every time after I feed her. I want to store LOTS of milk. I fear getting mastitis or some type of infection where I cant breast feed or my production will go down. I'm so adamant about breast feeding because of a lot of reasons, but the biggest is my antibodies. With this winter being one of the worst the sicknesses have seen I am quite nervous. We are still staying home and not taking her out. And now that she is a month old, she's not been sick yet.
So, I'm trying to figure out how to get myself to make more milk. I'm pumping and taking these supplements and have heard about this tea that is supposed to help. I figure why not try? So I'm trying those things and I do think it helps a bit.
But, are there other ways?
