- More Rest = More Milk
- More Nursing = More Milk
- Good Nutrition = More Milk
- More Water = More Milk
- More Rest? With a 2.5 year old and a 4 month old, when exactly is that supposed to happen?
- More Nursing? We've been nursing close to every 2 hours for a month and there's less milk, not more. I had a similar experience with the boy and ended up losing my hair in clumps as my body tried, unsuccessfully, to provide enough milk to keep up with his fervent appetite.
- Good Nutrition? Despite the lack of gluten and dairy in my diet, I eat well and I eat regularly. Three meals a day plus snacks. Seriously, you could set a clock by my stomach and when I'm at work, we do.
- More Water? I had been slacking a bit on this, because in my current sleepy state I had started replacing my water with (decaffeinated) coffee; but I'm on it now and the water consumption is back on track.
I've been on the medication for about 4 days now and I'm happy to share that there has been no formula for the last 2 days and the baby has resumed his routine of a 6 hour evening sleep followed by a quick feed and another 4 hours of sleep. Thank goodness. With the milk comes sleep and as much as the baby is in need of milk, I am in need of sleep.
