Here's my happy pooping recipe. LOTS of water (which you know). A bowl of oatmeal and an apple in the am and an apple and a small glass of prune juice () in the pm. Works like a charm. I usually eat another fruit during the day and leafy greens with dinner.

There's nothing worse than constipation after birth, in my estimation.

Go get water (if you don't already have some) ladies! Just a reminder!

I drank about 100 oz. yesterday! And today I've already drank about 50!

TMI: My pee is clear! completely clear!

Me, too. I have tried block feeding with success. But here's the question: If I'm not drinking very much, why am I producing SO much? Is that weird, or is it just the way my body works?

I'm trying to figure this out myself. I mean, I drink water, but likely not enough. Certainly not the amount some folks on her are posting (Go Lindsay!). And my baby is still gagging her way through half the feedings. I'm block feeding now, too, to get rid of the green poopies. It's somewhat successful.

I'm having the same thing. I drink a moderate amount of water (people here are putting me to shame!) and I constantly have milk. I think it's because he was eating every hour for several days. My body is producing constantly now. I feel like a cow (lol in a good way)

post #38 of 51
I going get some now. I need this motivation. I am horrible. I don't even think I get in my 8 glasses a day. I am still eating alot of ice though (w/ DS I stopped as soon as he was born, but w/ this one I didn't) and I think it makes me forget about drinking a whole glass of water.

I need to drink more water, but iced coffee sounded better. Does that count or not?

I need a reminder too.

Only my supply is fine, but I seem prone to bladder infections.
