1. More protein!
3. Fenugreek and Mother’s Milk Tea
4. Drinking as much water as I can without having to invest in adult diapers
5. Lactation muffins
Not sure if any of this is working. Still pumping 3x/day and my pumping outage varies from day to day——so frustrating! Most days little O has at least one bottle of formula. I didn’t want to do it but, girl’s gotta eat. Why am I never enough? Wait, are we still talking about breast milk?

"For years mental health professionals taught people that they could be psychologically healthy without social support, that “unless you love yourself, no one else will love you.” Women were told that they didn’t need men, and vice versa. People without any relationships were believed to be as healthy as those who had many. These ideas contradict the fundamental biology of human species: we are social mammals and could never have survived without deeply interconnected and interdependent human contact. The truth is, you cannot love yourself unless you have been loved and are loved. The capacity to love cannot be built in isolation."

"I often hear brides say their groom is their best friend. Really? My husband is my husband. My best friend is someone who has the patience to listen to a monologue about the heinously expensive purse I want."
i love this a lot. i think when you get into that husband=friend space you lose a lot of the passion and mystery that you need for a healthy marriage. I get what they’re saying when they say “my husband is my best friend” but personally don’t think you should use your husband like your best friend because one of those people is going to need to look at that weird mole in that weird place and that shouldn’t be the same person you want to kiss all over your naked body.
Also, if your LOLhusby is your best friend, who will you talk shit about your husband to?
Meg’s comment is A+ and accurate. This whole thing is 100% on point.
