Recently Hannah went through some rough days due to teething. She nursed more often those days and nights. As a result I produced more milk. Then suddenly she didn’t want as much. Oh me! I had too much, and I got a very painful infection on top of it all. I soon got some fresh pineapple and had some relief.
I hear a lot about drinking a special blended tea for “mother’s milk” for those who need help producing milk. I tried it once. I don’t need it! I have the opposite problem frequently, but I haven’t heard of many remedies for that. I had a doula a few years ago share with me that fresh pineapple will reduce the amount of milk that you produce. That bit of information has helped me many times. Just a few pieces at a time and I am no longer uncomfortably full. I don’t eat too much or I may not have enough milk for Hannah. It is a delicious way to solve an uncomfortable problem.
I hope this will help other mothers.
