Did I weigh myself this week? Yes. Did I do Weight Watchers this week? No. Did I lose weight? Um…yes. Weird.
So I’m finding that I’m SLOWLY losing weight no matter what I do. I follow all my points to a T and I lose a pound. Then I throw caution into the wind and eat like a pig and lose a pound. Huh.
On another note, I’m having milk supply problems. After I weaned her from the shield, my supply got better and I didn’t have to supplement anymore. But no matter what I did, I never really made much milk in the evening, for her last feeding before bed. So I would try to give her a bottle. But suddenly my fastidious baby turns up her nose at bottles. The same baby who drank bottles just fine a month ago. And even still she will take a bottle in the middle of the night. So I nurse her anyway so she can comfort herself but I always worry that she is still hungry.
But now my milk starts dwindling in the early afternoon. Thanks to my advisory board (also known as the Honeybear Lane Facebook Page) I am now taking Fenugreek and Mother’s Milk herbal tea. I’ve only taken it for a day, so I’m hoping it helps. For those of you who have taken these supplements, how long does it take for them to start working? And how much does it really help?
