Agree! I am also low supply. My lo is close to 1 month old and i have problem latching on my lo. My current yield is 2 oz per pump and i have been pumping 8 times a day. Although I have been taking fenugreek religiously daily, i don't see significant results. Anyway, i also intend to breastfeed for only 6 months as I really can't see myself pumping day and night (especially during office hour). Just try your best and not stress yourself. Ultimately, do what is best for your bb and you! There are many things (other than breastmilk) that can help you bring up a healthy and bright kid. Good luck, mate!How long have u been doing?
Can take domperidone (need doctor prescription), fenugreek, blessed thistle and other herbs, papaya fish soup, lactation cookies, tea etc.
But the effect various according to individual. Frankly speaking they won't double up the effect. Different pple can produce a particular amount of milk, all driven by the hormone level u have. You can take note of the timing when yield most for the day and spend a bit more time to pump during that session. Can google pumping techniques.
Me also low supply, latch not very possible, the turnaround is very slow, even after I pump frequent until nipple cracked n sore, feel disappointed in the beginning, yet feel lazy to pump as it is very tiring.
So just do whatever I can, pump as i feel comfortable to do. After all we only need to do it for 6 months mostly, spending time and help to develop your bb is also important.
my pinoy maid told me eat more clams for milk production. not sure whether it works or not...I gave birth in mid august and has a problem wih low milk supply. I seldom pump as I find latch on can stimulate more milk and baby seems satisfied after feed. When I do pump out, it is very discouraging, average 40ml only. With a power pump, I can get probably 60ml. I tried almost everything mentioned by other mothers to increase my milk supply - oats, Milo, lots and lots of water, lactation cookies, chia seeds, fenugreek, nursing tea, green papaya fish soup. Nothing seems to help significantly. My pinoy helper shared with me her experience of oversupply and how drinking coconut juice from her own backyard helps. But be careful if you are still under confinement as I understand coconut juice is cooling. Anyway I am no longer under confinement, so I took the coconut juice and ate the coconut flesh. Amazingly, I expressed 95ml in a power pump! It is a 50% increase compared to my usual output from a power pump. The most important part is the flesh as that is also used to make coconut milk. I did not express but could feel more milk when I eat curry cooked using coconut milk too.
ooo good good. my MIL has been cooking black fungus for me too. i didnt know there are lactation cookies. LOL
wah, damn lucky that all the food to increase production are my favourite food.everyone has different milk boosters so trial and error
i make a conscious effort of snacking on oats cookies (which has colostrum, almonds and fibre), drink milo, sprinkle chia seeds in yoghurt/salads/drinks, drink super oats drink etc
don't despair... keep trying. maybe salmon/fish, fenugreek etc would help for you. oh and lots of water since breastmilk is water-based so that you can produce.
let me know if you want to try the colostrum cookies. i order it regularly.
hihi, are you still breastfeeding? will you be interested with a supplement to boost your milk supply and helps you to lose weight at the same time?ooo good good. my MIL has been cooking black fungus for me too. i didnt know there are lactation cookies. LOL
instant oats and chia seeds also?
wah good good. coz the manuka honey supplier i always buy honey from has chia seeds too, but i never buy before
Chia Seeds Nuts Singapore
