Milk Made!

So go ahead and call me la pollo grande, but I can't continue to drink the sage tea and quit pumping.

I cut my pumping and started on this tea to reduce my supply a bit and ....to my horror it HAS WORKED! I no longer am getting over 45 oz out per day. I don't know if anyone else who has purposefully cut their milk supply back has experienced this huge feeling that they are doing something wrong, but I had to stop. It just felt wrong, and maybe a fear of drying up too soon has gotten the best of me. It was nice not to have to wash and sterilize pump parts and lots of bottles.
I don't know, maybe I'll try it again when the baby starts on solids around six months, but for now...

let the pumping resume!

Who needs a freezer full of meat when the supermarket is just a short drive avay =^_^=

I worried about the same thing. But if it's easier to just nurse, you should go for it. As long as you are alternating sides your milk supply should not suffer.
