What about alcohol-free beer? (Technically ultra-light beer as I think it still has 0.5% alcohol, about the same as many natural juices). Woolworths sell Schlossgold near the cordial section and it tastes like good European beer, much better than the normal watery non-alcoholic beer you can find. That way you're getting the hops without much alcohol.
@Atropos its working out! Jack just had his nurse check up today and is back at birth weight :-)
They are checking on him again Thursday and he's got another tt snip tomorrow.
The deep latch vids have been really helpful and even though he can't open wide its definitely helping me.
Also Thank you to everyone on here for your support and helping me stick it out.
I will keep you all updated xx
Great job mumma!!! X
OP I'm sorry you're going thru this, it was me with me first... I am 10 weeks in with #2 and it's going really well. One of the things that helped my low supply anxiety was having baby scales at home, I could weigh DD before & after a feed and know how much she had had... Breastmilk is pretty much a 1ml to 1gm ratio so easy to work out how much they have taken (even with sleep deprivation). Once I knew what she was getting I felt so much better :-) maybe that would be good for you? I know it won't suit all personalities.
I ate a lot of lactation cookies to help aswell :-) I'm happy to say I dont have a slow supply issue this time around.
I really hope things improve for you. Hugs
