MonicaRenee144 Posted October 31, 2012 Share Posted October 31, 2012 I know I've seen quite a few posts on this board from Mamas worrying about their milk supply tanking while on W30. So I thought I would share what worked for me. I too had some decrease in supply in the first two weeks of the W30, but I think that's because I hadn't figured out how to make the W30 work for my breastfeeding needs. My W30 is over now, but I'm still following the guidelines. I recently started treating breastfeeding essentially as you would a workout and adding in a fourth (maybe a little smaller) meal into my day, and now I have more milk than I know what to do with! We're talking a 5oz/day increase in what I pump at work - and I've even dropped a pumping session recently! Naturally this is great for pumping/storing while I'm working, but makes it rather uncomfortable on the weekends. Anyway, just a suggestion if you're having milk supply problems.My extra meal is usually mid morning because my little guy likes to reverse cycle a bit and consumes most of his calories between 2:30 and 5:30am (I guess I don't blame him for preferring me over bottles). I'm still getting great benefits from eating Good Food, and still losing weight (naturally W30 is about health, but almost all postpartum mamas want to lose a little baby weight - let's be real) I'm not sure what the Mods will think of this idea. Just sharing what is working for me! Link to comment Share on other sites More sharing options...
