Ok maybe it isn't that exciting BUT Creighton is taking 3oz of BM every 3-4 hours and I am finally up to pumping between 4 and 6 oz between both breasts so I have enough to feed him and sometimes even enough to freeze the same amount I feel much better having a big stash in the freezer All that oatmeal is high in calories but it certainly seems to be helping, along with the mothers milk tea and fenugreek.

I am just so happy that I don't have to feel stressed out about not making enough to carry him through a feeding anymore! Now he just needs to get a bit bigger so I can try getting him latched again!

In the beginning I was pumping every 90 minutes for 15 minutes (on both breasts) even if I got nothing. I was also drinking Mother's Milk Tea 2x a day then after 2 days upped it to 3x a day.(that stuff is horrible in the beginning if you don't like licorice but it grows on you after a bit) I recently started taking the Fenugreekpills 2 pills 3x a day as the tea seems to be giving my little guy (and me) a bit of gas. Basically I pumped ALL the time though for like 3 days and that really seemed to help. My DH just chimed in that I also started pumping to ocean wave sounds and that he thinks I just relaxed a bit more about it and that that may have helped as well.

I've drank mothers tea before but never tried fenugreek. I'm going to get some later on today.
