I've been taking 9 Fenugreek pills every day in hopes of increasing my milk supply. The verdict? I smell like maple syrup. (a common side effect). Unfortunately I don't think it has done much for my supply. I'm still supplementing Ryan with formula after each feeding, and thanks to that he now weighs 12 lbs, 7 oz! He's gaining 1 oz per day on average which is fantastic. But I really wish he could be gaining like this by exclusively drinking breastmilk.
Does anyone have any other tips for increasing my supply? I've heard oatmeal helps so I'm eating that for breakfast every day now. I know pumping is also supposed to help, and I've tried it. But it takes me an entire day to get 1 oz of breastmilk out. Talk about frustrating! Any other ideas? I really want to stick with this breastfeeding thing!
