    Wow Berry that's really interesting, being a nausea medication!!! Did the doc tell you how it would work? Would love to hear..

    Also something you can try is Raspberry Leaf in tea or tablet form, it's fantastic for milk production.

    You might also want to have a look at the Weleda range of products as they have a nursing mothers formula. I lvoe their stuff!! I have just bought the naturopathic teething formula. I can't wait until Jenna is teething so I can try it out!

    Rachel - if you go to the Weleda site, they list all the stockists. There are quite a few in Melbourne.
    I bought up when I went home cuase there is noone in Geelong selling it, and we dont get to Melbourne very often anymore.

    Kelly - I was given Maxalon to boost by supply and that's normally for nausea too.

    I was just about say exactly what you did Deb! That Maxalon is an anti-nausea medication, but it often prescribed to boost supply!

    hmmm, I have a script for maxalon... I guess if my supply diminishes I could get it filled!?

    Anyone know about thrush in babies mouth? Maddy had it around 3wks of age & it looks like Indah has it.. Although my breasts dont hurt, her tongue is really white & she keeps sticking it out...

    Thanks Shannon,
    I grabbed some yesterday...
    I was given the daktarin one & read that it was not recommended for anyone with liver probs & instantly thought of you!!!!

    Indah has been sleeping 5-6 hrs between each feed since I got the gel, so it may have been the reason she kept waking every 2-3 hours!!!!
