So here is what I do:
I take an herb called fenegreek-- probably spelled wrong
I take Ra.eglan 3 times a day
I spray oxytocin (refrigerated) into my nose 10 minutes before nursing or pumping
I am trying to eat oatmeal. I think I have finally found the perfect consistency.
I pump every 1 1/2 to 3 hours.
I visit with a lactation consultant from the nicu once a week
I am trying to be exclusive, but they are SO hungry! I don't feel like this has been working. I never have extra anything in my fridge or freezer. I am not and/or barely keeping up. The babes get formula 1-2 a day. Not bad, but not good either! Or Jelly gets it all and PB gets formula. (Her stomach does NOT tolerate the formula very well).
It is quite the production to nurse to babies at the same time. I have to get my water, the remote controls and/or book and/or computer, and the very best twin nursing pillow! It is made so that you can nurse 2 babies without holding them. They lay in the "football" hold and the pillow keeps them turned in to my body and at the right height.
So any other suggestions? Has anyone out there struggled like me and turned a corner sometime after 2 months? Because I go back to work at 3 months, and if it isn't any better I might just have to give it up.
Here is me nursing! I couldn't get my head to fit, so it is just the good parts!
And I just have to add some pictures I found. I don't think I ever posted them and I think they are hilarious. This is my cheerleading uniform from HS. Normally, I still fit it.
