So, I work full time and I breastfeeding. Recently, my milk production/supply has dipped significantly. So I tried one of those Mother's Milk Tea that has a bunch of different herbs that are suppose to stimulate production. It did, but it also caused me to get my period. I'm not thrilled about that part.
Anyway, I drank the tea two mornings in a row and I found myself having this huge feeling of guilt. Guilt that I wasn't able to provide 'clean', untainted milk. My daughter will be 5 months old this month and I keep thinking to myself, "Should we have waited?" "Were we really ready?" I think this now because I've been wanting to be a stay at home mom so that I can breastfeed exclusively, but that hasn't happened obviously. I know that we can't afford to live off of one income, but I desperately want to be home taking care of my daughter.
I'm not planning on drinking the tea any longer. I just can't get myself to drink it without feeling guilty....
I guess I just needed to put that out there. If anyone has any ideas on how I can become a stay at home mom with a steady income, please let me know. Please no commission based jobs or scams. I would like a reliable income.
Thanks for your time and help.
