topic 9 New Kid on the Block

Post by tomsgirls on Wed Aug 27, 2008 8:34 am

:boob: Hi my name is Jayne, and I have a 9 week old daughter who I have successfully breast fed until now..............I know I am still managing to do it. I was feeling a bit doubtful yesterday about my milk supply and found your website. I laughed so much because my questions were all answered there, ie. supply and quiet feeding. My doubts came yesterday when I started to pump (hand pump) and only got 30mls for 10 mins expressing...............I want to go out with my husband and friends for a few hours on Thursday. My baby suckled alot yesterday and on pumping this morning amount has increased. Thanks for keeping me motivated. I really want to exclusively breast feed for up to 6 months and I just needed some praise and reassurance. Thanks for that. I will join a support group next week at its monthly meeting. I saw someone referred to increasing your oats and a biscuit recipie can anyone enlighten me please. Thanks look forward to hearing your comments. Jayne Very Happy

Hi Jayne welcome and well done!!

I am glad this forum has helped you already!

About the oats:

They have been shown to help increase your milk supply,

Some possible explanations:


  • Oatmeal is is a good source of iron. It is known that maternal anemia/low iron levels can result in a decreased milk supply, so it makes sense that eating something high in iron might increase milk supply in some women.
  • Oatmeal is a comfort food for many women. Anything that increases relaxation in mom can encourage let-down, and hence also influence milk supply.
  • A use that some of the milk-increasing herbs share is that of decreasing cholesterol levels. Herbs used for both increasing milk production and decreasing cholesterol levels include fenugreek and alfalfa. Oat bran, which is in oatmeal, is also known to help lower cholesterol.

Heres a great link

Hi Jayne - well done so far! :aww:

I certainly notice a difference when i eat porridge for breakfast - and snacking on flapjack is good too! I make my own flapjack - ill find the link to the recipe for you in a minute.

30ml is good for handpumping - i only get about that 10 mins on electric pump - and i express 3 times a day as i donate. The more you express - the more milk you will make. if you express at about the same time each day, you will see a bit of a difference over a few days. Mine is slowly on the increase now after a bit of a dip.

Anyway, fire away with any questions - look forward to getting to know you! Very Happy

Hi all, I have just been able to access your responses......I am not very computer literate. All still going well, I have now got an electric pump, better volumes now I just need to get a wee stash in the freezer. I think I would also like to donate eventually as I have first hand experience of the life saving properties it can give to premature neonates. Must go Katie calls. Talk again soon Jayne
