How to Be a Happy Breastfeeder
The secrets to breastfeeding bliss
The bummer: “I feel like a dairy truck but I’m still not making enough milk.”
The fix: “When my son was a newborn and he was so fussy, it was hard to tell if I was making enough milk for him, my midwife told me to drink two to three cups of Mother’s Milk tea a day,” says Holly Klaassen, a mom of two in Vancouver who blogs at The Fussy Baby Site. “It tasted awful, but I could tell I was finally producing enough milk. It was such a relief!” Other common milk-boosting remedies include breast compression and the herb fenugreek. For Coffee, happy hour got her milk flowing; as she explains it, “The one tip that worked the best for me, and was immediately effective, was drinking one wheat beer a day.” Check with your doctor first, of course.
