Re: PLEASE help me out here

when my DS was new i had a lot of trouble with my milk, and even now, everytime i get stressed or don't eat or drink enough, my milk goes down. my sigestion is take fenugreek and try mommy teas- they bulked up my supply really quick. also, make sure when you nurse, he nurses till you are dry, then try nursing again sooner than you normally would- adding a few extra nursing sessions will build up the milk faster and after that, you can always cut back the number again.

As far as oatmeal goes, I don't like just plain ol' oatmeal.... but these cookies (also known as Preacher Cookies in the South) are amazingly good... I don't have supply issues... but WHOA.. get out the big bra after eating some of these!!

Re: PLEASE help me out here

We make those with both chocolate and without (for me and DD) I always use the excuse "I'm nursing, so I can have extra" when it comes to those cookies. But they DO help your milk supply tons and they taste great.

Re: PLEASE help me out here

I used Mother's Milk tea from Traditional Medicinals....the LC at my hospital also suggested taking Fenugreek capsules along with Blessed Thistle capsules 3x a day. You can get both in most vitamin/supplement stores. I never did that because the tea seemed to help me when my supply was low. I agree with everyone else too...try nursing him more...even just a few times more a day and your supply should increase again. Try and take time to relax too (yeah right)...the more you are tensed up, the more your body has to work to produce that milk!! Sorry for the loss of your grandmom...I just lost mine this week, and I know what you are going through...

OMG It's SO funny that you posted this recipe! I JUST had to look up the thread (my computer died and I lost my *Favorites* list). These are DELICIOUS and worked REALLY well when I made them last time. AF is here now (which seriously whacks out my supply), so I'm off to make some more.

OP, make these, they WILL help!!!
