This was GOING to be a post where I release all of my randomness. I've also seen it written as a brain dump, but instead, I think it's time I come clean. Stand up like the adult I am and admit I have a problem....
She's taken to the drink folks! That's right. I've resorted to drinking and I wish I liked it better then I do. And we ARE talking about alcohol here... Some of you newer followers are probably thinking Wait, doesn't she have a breastfeeding infant at home? And the answer is without a doubt, yes!
Breastfeeding a 3 month old who is demanding more then what I'm making, is driving me crazy with stress...And this is where I come clean...No, I'm not drinking because I'm stressed but because it's supposed to increase your milk supply.
I love play on words, hee hee--- Anyway, before you ask, yes I've taken almost everything there is out there i.e Fenugreek, Blessed Thistle, Mothers Milk Tea, More Milk Plus drops, Oatmeal which I'm currently still on, Raspberry tea, and now beer...
I drink half a Samuel Adams after my last feeding of the night which gives my body plenty of time to process the alcohol out of the milk. It seems to be helping but the problem lye's in the fact that, I HATE BEER! I'm a wine and hard liquor kinda girl, ha! So I went to my best friend "Google" and asked what was it about beer that increased breastmilk production. It's the HOPS folks. So being the genius I am, I took my happy hiney down to our local Super Supplements and bought Hops pills. Should fix that! Here's to hoping because I dread the nightly beer...For all you beer drinkers, you probably think I nuts but the truth is I like those wimpy sugary drinks;)
I'm up for any other suggestions you've tried, that worked...Ya know, in case this genius idea flops and I have to revert back to my bag of tricks;)
I was going to write a bit more on this but Sugarcube is done with her tenth catnap of the day and is screaming at me through the monitor:) Isn't alcohol supposed to put them out??? I kid!
