Milk Supply Increasing Moooo

Heidi - February 15

I've been b/f for 4 months now and I've noticed this week that my milk is increasing quite a bit. Anyone else notice spurts where it increases/decreases? The weird part is I've been eating a lot of toast with peanut butter and honey every morning before work and come lunch time I can fill both 5 oz bottles to the top and still pump more but I don't have room! Same with in the mornings lately even after she's fed once or twice during the night. I feel like I'm going to burst today and I pumped like 9 oz before coming to work. Anyone else notice certain foods that increase your milk supply? I heard oatmeal works and I have a cup of that at work every morning. Does anyone have foods they can't eat cus their baby gets gassy from it? I still can't drink milk and just realized I can't have spaghetti sauce anymore. Major fussy/gassy the next day.

Yep, it usually follows a growth spurt.

Oh I hear ya. My DH still can't help but crack a joke at me when I'm pumping at home. He'll start making meowing sounds and say he's finding pawprints in the snow outside the house. It's even worse when my hand slips and it makes that horrible slurping sound. He just breaks out laughing. I do too. Especially when it happens at work. I wonder if anyone can hear it! My co-worker calls me Bessie.

I've quit pumping now, but when I was, sometimes I got so much, I now have a freezer full of milk "in case we need it"... I can't eat: dairy, peppers, garlic (anything spicy) or anything new - ie anything I haven't eaten since the baby was born has to be eaten cautiously in low quant_ty.
