Weight check

Thurston had his weight check yesterday and is up 14 ounces since August 26. I thought it'd be so much more since he seems to have started to get some flab. That's right, he's got a belly roll when he sits up...albeit a small roll. He's now upgraded to the...dun dun dun 7th percentile in body weight, clocking in a hefty 13 pounds, 1 ounce.

I've noticed my milk supply is slowly starting to increase and I've added 6 Blessed Thistle pills to my already 12 Fenugreek pills I take a day.

Have I mentioned I hate swallowing pills? Emphasis on the "hate".



For reference, Fenugreek seed is often used as a seasoning in curry. It also has use as a galactagogue, which stimulates lactation. kellymom.com has tons of literature on it.
















Blessed Thistle has been shown to help increase lactation in conjunction with Fenugreek seed. It is also a galactagogue.

Yea Thurston!! He will be rolling in rolls in no time!
Fenugreek is awesome! I used it when my milk started to decrease back when declan was about month old and it worked wonders.
