Supply Issues

I’ve stopped taking the reglan now for over 24 hours and I am feeling much improved. Before that I had 2 days of only taking it before bedtime. I haven’t cried in 3 days. While that could also be because my husband is home on vacation, I still think a lot of it may have been the medication for I cried the first 3 days he was home. I can tell already that my supply is going down after stopping the medication, it is back to oatmeal, tea, fenugreek and lots of water for me. I am hoping to not have to pump all the time to try and increase supply, but that is a better option than medication, for now. It was just so time consuming when I was trying to breastfeed, supplement with a bottle and pump all together. Also, if the baby doesn’t want to be put down after a feeding, it can be difficult to get a pumping session in. I guess that is a good question for group.

I am going to go back and try the breastfeeding group again next week, but I am not holding my breath. There is also a breastfeeding group associated with the clinic I go to that meets monthly. I will try that as well.

We went and toured our first daycare center yesterday. It was like baby jail with all of the stripped, white cribs lined up against the wall. It seemed clean enough, but very institutional. I also have to wonder why, if they were having a big open house event, none of the infant instructors were there. I am willing to go see the other options, but I think in home care might be the best option until he is 1 at least.
