    Supply Issues

    I'm using the full fat canned coconut milk (13.5oz) and I drink 1 can a day, as well as 1/3 of a cup of coconut cream in my coffee. I didn't have a plated fat with dinner that night as I had a cup of tea with the coconut milk in it. Ok, so more veggies/ hardier veggies and more protein and see how things go? Today's menu: Breakfast: potatoes, green beans and 2 fried eggs, 1/2 avocado with 1/3 cup coconut cream in 2 cups coffee - I could barely finish breakfast I was so full Lunch- leftover Thai chicken and sprout skillet with warm salmon and potato salad Dinner- Craklin chicken with cucumber, tomato and avocado salad, roasted potatoes and green beans. I'll have my can of coconut milk and my 3 cups of tea, plus 100-120oz water. Anything else I should add or does that seem ok?

    Supply Issues

    Thanks for help! I cook almost all our proteins in either ghee or coconut oil and use Nom Nom Paleo's mushroom powder mix (salt, dried mushrooms, thyme, pepper) on almost everything (i'm more likely to over-salt as opposed to under) . My sleep is pretty good- usually around 6-7 hours sometimes uninterrupted, mostly not because of the baby and my 2 other kids. Here's another day of eating (I don't usually track foods, but I did this day to see what my fat/ calorie intake was for supply reasons). I'll try to add a dense veggie/ more veggies, I just feel so full on what I'm already eating. We didn't eat many processed food before this, but i think we did eat pretty carb heavy.
  3. Hi! I'm on day #9 and my supply has completely tanked over the last week. I've been trying for 3 or so day to increase my supply. My son is EBF and is 5 months old. I drink approximately 100oz of water a day (I'm 132/lbs), I've been drinking mother's milk tea since Monday and my supply still has not recovered. My son's poops are bright green and my breasts are SUPER soft/empty. He nurses for a lot longer than before W30. Ive been eating until full and also adding a 4th meal, and making sure my meals have a fat. Here's a sample of what I eat: B- 2 fried eggs, 3 sweet potato latkes, 1/2 avocado, 2 cups coffee 1/3 cup coconut cream L- potato salad ( mayo, bacon, potatoes) mixed with arugula and 1/2 avocado. D- pork picatta with zoodles, arugula salad with cucumber, tomatoes, 1/2 avocado Mini Meal- 3 slices compliant deli turkey rolled with avocado, apple + 2 tbs almond butter, handful of dried mango and sliced almonds. Plus I drink a can of coconut milk with 2-3 cups of mother's milk tea. I'm offering the breast like crazy to try to increase supply. Any other suggestions? What should I do if I can't keep my supply up? Can I modify and add oatmeal to help produce milk? Any advice would be greatly appreciated! This is my last baby and I'm not giving up nursing him.
