Looking for advice on what to feed me, the milk machine. I'm nursing three! 4 mos old, 3 year old I try to keep to before and after naps and bed, and 6 year old (in one week) who I try to keep down to just before and after bed. The big two would prefer a few more tunes especially if they are not feeling 100% for whatever reason.

I felt like I wasn't eating enough the last few days but can't get a handle on it. Today I had an I'm starving melt down and still haven't recovered. We need to try going dairy and gluten free too.

I'm only nursing one, but I feel really run down from it at times. He is a BIG nurser still at 2 1/2.

 

I talked to my ND and my nearby health store. I started drinking stinging nettle tea daily, and upped my B vit intake with some supplements. ND wanted me to get more healthy fats in my diet, like coconut and olive. Its made a pretty noticeable difference. Especially the tea. Snack on high protein/nutrient dense items throughout the day. smile.gif
