So, if you wanna make gallons of breastmilk withOUT fenugreek or domperidone, all you gotta do is drink Oatly (in lieu of eating 5 bowls of oats per day, which is frankly disgusting).

2 mugs of chocolate Oatly before bed (to indulge my sweet tooth and make up for the Horlicks i usually drink but can't, because dairy really upsets B's reflux), and i'm engorged in the morning!  I can pump it off and freeze it for emergencies!

Man it feels NICE to be making enough milk to have to deal with OVERsupply, and not having to chemically induce it (as such)!

Between having enough milk for B all by myself, and having a new (Quinny Buzz) buggy that doesn't aggravate my neck, i feel like a new [happier] woman!

eta: and their non-cream cream is pretty damn tasty too. So much better than soya stuff, and better for ME, too, considering thyroid issues!

eta again: also loving and drinking at least one Supermalt a day can't be harming my supply either. God that stuff tastes good!

Mood:: 'impressed' impressed

i've got to spend at least the next 5 months with NO DAIRY in my diet.

We performed a little experiment over the weekend which led to 4.5 hours of continuous crying and mucousy poop the next day :/ All i did was eat 2 butter croissants, some yoghurt and a cheese sandwich. Oh and a little cottage cheese. MEH.

So, that's me eating soya (ICK) or goat's stuff, until some magical time when her guts can cope with dairy proteins :/

Damn. Ah well, i did it for R and survived, but it wasn't pretty :/

Still,  at least i can control / alleviate her pain by making a choice not to eat stuff... its an expensive annoyance, but i'd be so many more times crushed if i had to put her on formula...not to mention the expense!

Speaking of which, domperidone is a miracle, oh yes. God bless domperidone and savvy GPs who will give it out...
