When I was home last weekend, I made some cookies that are supposed to boost milk supply. They're really good, and I can justify eating 4 or 5 of them a day by telling myself it's for a good cause ;) I'm not big on chocolate chips, so I substituted white chips and added in some craisins... they are some of the yummiest cookies I've had in a long time. The cookies have brewer's yeast in them, which is really nutritious and I guess one of the key ingredients that's supposed to help boost your supply. The oatmeal is important, too. A lot of breastfeeding women eat oatmeal for breakfast every day, I try to eat as much as I can, although some days I don't eat breakfast, and when I do eat oatmeal for breakfast, it's of the instant variety, so I'm not sure it's the same thing... But it's the best I can do for now. I was reading on the brewer's yeast can that you can mix it into pretty much anything, as it's not flavored, so I tried mixing some into my oatmeal the other day. That was a horrible idea! I won't be doing that again, at least not using as much as I did. It says on the can to take 2 tbsp... I added about 1/2 tbsp to some soup today at lunch, I think that's about as much as I'll be able to mix into stuff without having it change the consistency to the point where I can't eat it.
Uncle Terry finally got a chance to come visit Faith. I think Uncle Mike is now the only local relative who hasn't had his picture taken with her... I guess he needs to come visit!
