I just don't give up, now, do i?

I just can't seem to give up. I keep trying. I keep going after solutions.  And now, I keep drinking this gawd-awful tasting prolactation tea in yet another effort to get effortless milk supply in. *Generously donated by Tara at Prolactation to see if it will help - thank you Tara*

So what's that now; a prescription for domperidone, rental each and every month of a hospital grade pump, water water water water water, and the same damn oatmeal every single morning.  Sheesh. I hate eating the same food over and over every day. But I've tried going without and believe me, it's a noticeable reduction without the oatmeal!

I don't know who it is that says breastfeeding is the cheap option for feeding your children. All the above adds up in costs and I am still buying and using formula too!

(To be fair, if I had only one child, I would now have enough milk for her, but unfortunately, I still don't have enough for two.)

The babies are now 5 months old, and I am a tenacious, gritty, hell-no I won't go kinda momma.

Now, let me go choke down some more of this tea to see if it will work wonders...


  1. Oh man that's a flashback for me http://thedaveye.blogspot.com/2010/10/breastfeeding.html I partially bfed my twin boys until 6 months. Let me tell you, when you come out the other end you'll feel so much better.

  2. What a wonderful post - it should be shared with many. That book sounds great too. Yes, I wish I had been more mentally prepared for this journey too, but I have learned a lot along the way. No finite end date in sight for my breastfeeding journey, but starting to finally feel great about the effort and what I have managed to do to now.
