Milk Maid Tea??

Has anyone ever used this? Did it really work?
I've tried oatmeal, pumping a bizzillon times a day - nothing is working - she's nursing fine when we are at home all the time but she has to go to daycare for two days a week - I NEED bottles!

We are SO broke - can anyone let me know if this works before I actually buy it and find out that it doesn't?

Have you tried a hospital grade pump? Many women find those much more effective!

Also - can you try pumping while baby is nursing? SOme find that helpful too ---

I have a hospital grade pump but I can't take it work (ride the bus and it's way too heavy for me to carry around!).

I've thought about pumping while she is nursing but I can't figure out how to it - I don't seem to be that coordinated! Have you done it? How?

Milk tea worked for me, but I had to pump in the tub, or my milk would never let down for the pump...

Not on a regular basis, but I did do it in the beginning with this DS I got very propped up and summoned for the help of DH in order to get set up!!! Ill see if I can find some resources to help you
