Oh Pam, you are remarkable, and that spills over into your incredibly-created, life-changing products! I’m not exaggerating. With the help of Fenugreek, I was able to breastfeed my son till he was 10 months. I would’ve been able to keep going, but I found out I was pregnant again and my supply ceased. The other products I love are the Tummy Tincture, Healing Salve, and Itch Relief. These last three items my whole family has used and loved! The past year I bought the Healing Salve at least 6 times! This stuff is a must have for EVERY household. As the original detailed info stated ‘Typical results is that it will heal a diaper rash within hours overnight in severe cases’ Absolutely 100% true!!! I cannot rave enough about this product! You can feel good that you’re putting something that’s healthy on your child and your other family members, their skin is not going to be absorbing anything unnatural or toxic. I’m going to buy this for my cousins that are having babies. Now, the Tummy Tincture was a must for my son and I while I was breastfeeding because we both became bloated while I was taking a larger quantity of the Fenugreek. This helped immensely! Pam, you have done a phenomenal job at meticulously detailing every product and which products work in tandem with one another. I forgot to mention that I also purchased and love the Garlic Ear Oil. It’s given my aching ears relieve many many times. Even when the doctor says she doesn’t see anything out of ordinary within my ears (even though I feel an earache coming on), I turn to this product for help. I only have to use it overnight to feel relief. I think that’s everything about the products. Now about you Pam. I have reached out to you twice about problems. You graciously and extensively answered me in depth and with compassion. The entire Herb Lore community is so positive and loving because of you and your products. Thank you so much for making healthy organic natural remedies that really do work, and improve mine and my family and friends lives. I wish you many blessings. Deep gratitude, TLC
Is it worth even TRYING to breastfeed your second baby?
Didn't make enough breastmilk for your first baby? Now you're pregnant with your next one, or considering getting pregnant again? Are you wondering if you should even try to breastfeed this next baby, considering how difficult or perhaps even impossible it was with your first one? Let me give you some excellent news ...
The Lancet (a well-known and very well-respected medical journal) published a study of 22 mothers in which milk output was measured at 1 week and 4 weeks after giving birth to their first and second babies. Significantly more breast milk was produced at 1 week for the second baby than the first baby (an increase of 31%). Additionally, the increase was greatest for those who had the lowest milk output with their first baby. The milk production increase was also evident at 4 weeks. This is pretty good news, and definitely worth the try. Based on their scientific findings, it does get easier the next time around. The Lancet states " Health professionals should encourage women to breastfeed all their children, whatever their experience with their first child." Here is a link to the Abstract of their study if you'd like to see it for yourself: http://www.ncbi.nlm.nih.gov/pubmed/11583756?dopt=Abstract
