    I took a prescription pill called Domperidone last time to boost my milk....and HOLY COW did it boost my milk! Maybe you could try that. Another thought I had is that the yeast in beer is supposed to help with milk production. This idea is great for two reasons....you get to have a beer....and it boosts your milk! If you have some pumped milk stored and can give a bottle of BM it's worth a try. I had a sweet sweet Corona the other night and my milk increased the extra day....I didn't need an increase but it helped build my freezer stash GL and try to stay strong and stick with it a little longer. It's hard, and believe me I hear you about having a toddler. A girl on my previous BB gave me the idea of a BF toy box for my toddler. It's toys that she only gets to play with while I'm BF, so they seem new and exciting and keep her entertained really well so I can dedicate the concentration I need to for a proper feed with Karah. Maybe you could give that a try? Mine isn't full of expensive toys....just toys that are new to her....some from dollar store, clearance at Walmart etc.

    YAY Aly! That is great Hooch.


    The BF toy box is a great idea Eilidh. I had never thought of that before.

    Hang in there Erica. I was in the same place emotionally as you were with the BFing when Nico was born as well. Have you seen a LC? Honestly, it worked wonders for me. I went in once and she showed me exactly how to get this little guy to latch with no problems. I just couldn't get him to latch on for the life of me (and I successfully BFed Addy for 13 months, with no LC help) Maybe a professional can help you with different techniques to get the little guy to stay on and move to the second boobie??

    wow, can't believe I am just today finding this thread. So glad to know others are sharing the exact same issues as I am.
    I started on the Mother's Milk tea last night to help my supply...that is something else everyone can try that needs a little supply boost.
    I tried the Fenugreek and Reglan was DS and neither seemed to help but I was pumping then too and I think that really hurt my supply.

    Gah! I ordered some milk storage bags from Amazon and they still aren't here! I've run out of bottles I'm gonna have to have DH feed her from the bottles just so I can keep my pumping up.

    Reading about the nipple shield possibly decreasing supply gave me quite a scare...

    I've been using one for over a month now and haven't noticed any problems, but how do you tell?

    (I don't know that we could BF without it - it seems like the more she sucks or I pump, the flatter they get. )

    Ok, just have to put it out there...Pam Anderson ain't got nothin on me. Pretty sure I am about a 34H right now, SO glad for stretchy sleep bras and nursing tanks!

    I hear you! I think (haven't found a bra to test though) that I'm a 34F when drained and a 34G when full - I literally live in my nursing tanks...nothing else comes close to fitting!

    And speaking of bra sizes...

    When do your breasts 'settle' into a size? Does this happen while nursing or only after you wean? (I'd like to be able to wear a real bra again during the day and save the tanks for nighttime.)

    And where do you find a 34F-G nursing or even non-underwire bra? And if those mythical garments don't exist , when is it safe to wear underwire again?
