Hi!! I am almost 6 weeks old!!
So, Baby girl A is almost 6 weeks old (I did write a 1 month old post...but I have to actually finish it and hit publish...that would be good right? LOL). And with being almost 6 weeks we have been growing...and this current growth spurt is KILLLLLING me (us).
She is so hungry all of the time. ALL of the time. My boobs have been amazing up until Tuesday. They have not been able to keep up with her! BUT I guess that my body will catch up and until then I can sort of help it/supplement my body to make more! (My MIL has suggested skipping the breastfeeding and giving her formula..pshhh..lady, I did NOT get my nipples chomped on for 6 weeks to give up now! LOL! I have so many friends that use formula, and again you can do what you want, it is your choice...but I want to breastfeed...and she knows how important it is to me...)
In Exeter, NH there is this little itty bitty tea shop called White Lily Teas, that sells Mothers Milk Tea. It is there own blend. It is supposed to help my production of milk. And I hope so! And I am not sure if it is just me responding to her needs, but there was an increase of milk this morning. She was not unhappy with me at all.
I will keep trying this tea...and letting you all know how it goes! :)
P.S. Some people said that they don't enjoy the taste so I added sugar and milk and it was actually good!
