    I didn’t discover the pumping bra for moooonths! I was kicking myself. I’d rigged up an old sports bra but the actual thing worked a lot better. 😉

      SERIOUS lifesaver! I am so glad I didn’t wait too long. I think I’d give up on pumping if I didn’t have this bra.

    I did teas and herbal supplements. I also ate junk food. I really wish I had NOT eaten cookies when I was nursing. Wheat, dairy and sugar all combined to add to my daughter’s colic because I had food sensitivities to them.. Between that and teething, I swear she learned to talk so she could ask for tylenol.

    I’m a food addict (now in recovery) and have lactose intolerance. Eating that stuff was devastating to me, and didn’t make for a great childhood for my daughter, either. Better late than never, but I never dreamed that my food template then could cause us both so much pain.

    Good luck and hoping for a better outcome for you and the baby.

      It’s definitely interesting to see what effects the baby when nursing. I drank 1 cup of coffee a day when I was pregnant (which was my norm pre-pregnancy) and then that first week and a half home from the hospital I was so sleep deprived I didn’t drink any coffee at all because I was trying to get sleep whenever I could. That second week I was feeling a bit better and thought, maybe I’ll have my coffee again! Big mistake. I think it contributed to a few sleepless nights with my little guy deciding to be wide awake! Back to no coffee right now…

    The cookies sound yummy though I’ve never had a baby.
    Best wishes!

    Best wishes on your wonderful baby. He looks adorable.

    FYI Brewers yeast is found in health food stores. It is a dried non-live yeast that is a by product of brewing, not live yeast. Brewers yeast was considered a very healthful supplement back in the 70’s and often recommended to nursing mothers. I do not believe that you should be using active live yeast which is a very different thing.

    I think I’ve found brewer’s yeast in the bulk section at New Seasons (so likely also at Whole Foods and Fred Meyer) – sometimes it’s called nutritional yeast and I don’t know if there is any important difference. I love it on popcorn and it’s also a big ingredient in fake-cheese vegan cooking, so it’s definitely around!

    That bra both amazes and amuses me – I have a vague notion about what is involved with pumping, but clearly some smart mom was like, that’s it, we need a PRODUCT for this! I’m adding that to my list of tips to give pregnant friends!

      The bra is amazing and I will definitely be getting it as a gift for any friends that get pregnant because it was such a life saver. I wish someone had told me about it!
