Just realized....

I spend more on supplements to keep my milk up than I would on formula. Argh!!
But its worth it to me. :-)

Hehe, I came to that realization at one point.

But then we figured out fenugreek upset DS' stomach so now I just drink tons of water and lactation cookies here and there. Somehow he's still well fed and now I'm not constantly engorged.

Re: Just realized....

I think I'm spending more on appointments for Lactation support to try and get rid of these sore nipples. My LO clicks off the nipple throughout the feed because she has a funky suck. I'm thinking it will never be fixed and I'll just have to deal...

Re: Just realized....

I was just thinking that too! Searching on thrifty ways to get supplements and consolidate what I take. :-)

I also think to myself "the more I nurse, the longer I nurse, the less I'll probably pay for doctor's visits in the future, or time missed from work because my LO is sick". Hope it will all come full circle!

Ouchee!! So sorry. I hope lo gets better at it. Ydd was born with severe TT/LT and bubble palate so its been a struggle from day 1 and I can totally relate. Once she got it lasered I needed a LC to help me teach her to nurse. Its still hard with the bubble palate but we are managing....still have to use the shield though.
