Postpartum DIY’s, BreastFeeding Tips & Pump Unboxing

Close ×

Hey everyone!! I pre-filmed several videos before we moved and before I had my baby.. I had my baby a bit early and gave birth to a healthy baby boy on July 6, 2017. His name is Isaiah.. I will do a labor & delivery video and introduce him to you soon. I pre filmed so that I can have some time off from filming. This video was already completely finished and I’m just uploading it and writing this. I wanted to make sure my channel didn’t go dark for weeks, so please bear with me and expect pre-filmed videos ONLY for the next week and a half or so! Feel free to spread the word if anyone in the comments gets confused.. =)

I’m NOT a breastfeeding pro, but so far it’s already going better with Isaiah than it did with Oliver.. Here are a few things I did to prep, and I hope to start using my pump tonight actually.. Hopefully these tips help you out.

Here’s where I ordered my breast pump

A few others things I try and seem to help.

1) Try making an appointment with a lactation consultant so he/she can see a breastfeeding session between you and your baby.. They can help give you tons of tips to help feed property.
2) Drink tons of water
3) Keep your calorie intake up
4) Ask your doctor or lactation consultant if they recommend you take a supplement such as fenugreek or “Lactation Support” to help support your milk supply. There are also several lactation teas you can find on Amazon or health food stores.
5) Try the cookies or shake as a special treat and a way to help support increased calorie intake + milk supply.

Smoothie Recipe
1 cup almond milk
1 frozen banana
1/2 cup of oats
2 tbs ground Flaxseed
2 tbs peanut butter
1 tbs chocolate milk mix

Lactation Cookie Mix (In A Jar)
recipe adapted from & adjusted by me.

1 cup flour
1/2 tsp salt
1/2 tsp baking soda
1/2 tsp baking powder

1 1/2 cup rolled oats
1 Tbsp. Flaxseed meal
1 Tbsp. Brewer’s yeast

To be added later

Combine the flour, sea salt, baking soda & baking powder. In a separate small bowl, combine oats, flaxseed and yeast. Layer ingredients.. brown sugar, flour mixture, chocolate chips, oat mixture.

To finish-

Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Combine melted butter, Egg and 1 tsp. vanilla. Add the contents in the jar to the bowl and mix well. Place balls of dough on a cookie sheet. Bake for 10-15 minutes.

    This was so helpful! I'm 13 weeks pregnant with my first baby and trying to get as many tips as I can. Breastfeeding is extremely important to me! This might be an obvious answer but when do you start eating the lactation cookies and drink the tea? Once baby is born? Or do you start while you are still pregnant? This is all new for me! Thanks! 😊💕
