I don't want to feed her. You feed her!


We just found out Jenny's milk supply is running low. So when it comes to feeding Zoe, we've all had to help out a little. Since we couldn't miss the new episode of The Office, Zoe had to get her own food tonight. Lucky for us she's pretty good at feeding herself. The lactation consultant recommended an herbal supplement called Fenugreek that makes Jenny smell like maple syrup. Now I call her Aunt Jemima. I tossed and turned all night dreaming about sausages and silver dollar pancakes covered in maple syrup. I was as "a hungry man that dreameth, and, behold, he eateth; but he awaketh, and his soul is empty" (Isaiah 29:8). I'll have to make my way over to the IHOP tomorrow before I teach.

you ss, i'm not surprised that you're not obsessed with breast milk, given your obsession with other bodily products...but i figured the diaper changing would give you plenty of poo to marvel at. guess i was wrong.

Jenny, I have read that eating oatmeal is good for upping your supply also. The website www.breastfeeding.com has some good information. Good luck, that must be frustrating!
