After breastfeeding four babies, I’ve discovered the best lactation supplement on the market, and it is the only supplement I drink for milk supply. Since drinking this lactation supplement, my milk supply has come in faster (way faster, read this!), and I’ve had so much milk for my fourth baby. Let me tell you, this lactation supplement isn’t just a supplement, but an overall nutritional boost that will nourish your body, help you lose weight, and it tastes amazing! If you’ve been following me in Instagram, or reading my blog for a while, you probably already know the drink I’ve been drinking to keep my milk supply up, as I am just 2 weeks postpartum now. And yes, this lactation drink helped me drop 12lbs in 10 days, and even more now that I am 14 days postpartum. Let’s get into the fun details on why this lactation drink is…

I am about 8 days postpartum now, and I was so happy to see my milk start coming in about 4 days postpartum. Breastfeeding in the first couple of days can feel useless because it doesn’t seem like anything is coming out. The newborn keeps sucking and practicing latching, for what appears to be nothing. With each baby, I was always anxiously waiting for my milk to come in. With my fourth baby, it came in by about 4 days postpartum, which was a bit faster than my other three. I thought it would be helpful if I went over my steps in the hospital and at home that were a little different with this baby, which I think made a difference in how fast my milk supply came in. you might also like: How I Lost 12 lbs By 10 Days Postpartum Keep Baby “Nursing” As Much As Possible: As…

Weight loss right after birth is a big topic here, so I wanted to give an update on my weight loss after baby #4. I hadn’t weighed myself on the day of birth, but I know I was just over 156 lbs. My last appointment I weighed in just over 156 lbs, and I hadn’t been gaining much weight at the end, so I am guessing I was about there or a bit more at the time of delivery. Knowing my body, even though I haven’t weighed myself yet, I have lost about 12 lbs, which is a lot of the extra baby weight I gained. I am almost back into my pre-pregnancy shorts at 10-days postpartum, which is usually how I judge weight loss. I look at inches and clothes fitting, rather than weight because my weight. I’ve lost muscle too, which is typical in recovery during the 6…

I am just over a week postpartum now, with my fourth baby, and I’ve been mentally keeping track of all my breastfeeding tips and tricks this week, that have really helped me with milk supply and adjusting to breastfeeding again. Your first week with a newborn is a lot of either remembering how to breastfeed, or learning to breastfeed. In order to make breastfeeding as successful as possible, here is what I suggest: Take advantage of a lactation consultant or help: The hospital always offers a lactation consultant, and I highly recommend taking any helpful tips they have! I remember with my second baby, we were working on latching a few hours after birth. I was feeling fairly “pro” because I breastfed my first for over a year. Still, she had some awesome latching tricks that really helped, and I didn’t know! I’ve learned that in motherhood, you are never…
