Vitamins & Supplements / Re: Cod Liver Oil Is Yucky

I would try a different brand, flavor or gelcaps.  Or maybe follow up with something acidic (lemon, vinegar, coffee, etc.).
Vitamins & Supplements / Cod Liver Oil Is Yucky
« Last post by floridapets on October 05, 2014, 03:50:23 PM »
   My family is now taking a teaspoon of cod liver oil during breakfast. No big deal, except I notice a fishy/metallic flavor on my tongue for the rest of the day.   I commented about my tongue during dinner and our daughter agreed.
   Our CLO is orange "flavor" and smells very orangey.  However, it tastes like CLO.  Does anyone know what we can do/drink/eat to get the "taste" off of our tongue?  Or, is there a preferred brand?  We need to continue this supplement and I would like it to be a better experience for our family.

Just wanted to add this info that I found about Burdock, which looks like it's in the product Sinus Support.

"Burdock has antiplatelet effects." from this website:

Hope this helps someone as it did me!

First, so sorry to hear your little one had to go through surgery.  Long-term stays in the hospital are horribly difficult, especially when it is because an infant has been ill.  <3 

How is your milk supply?  Have they had your daughter eating "solid" foods yet, or just milk and supplemental formula?  If your milk supply is up, personally, I would go that route - as nothing beats mama's milk when it comes to being just PERFECT for a growing babe... and absolutely BEST for cleansing and healing. 

Now, if your milk supply has dwindled (likely, considering your difficult circumstances), then you can try and bring up back up.  Taking it slow and steady, often a mama can continue get back into the swing of things with full-time breastfeeding.  The more often your little one demands, the sooner (and better) your milk supply will likely come up.  In other words, while you probably won't be able to fill her up completely at first, she will "demand" more milk by nursing often - this should stimulate a healthy milk production.  If you supplement her too much, she will fill up on formula, and won't demand milk as frequently. 

Getting back to just BF only works well, however, if YOU take care of yourself as well.  You must eat properly, try and rest... and make sure you drink enough, of course. 

The truth is though, you have been under a large amount of stress, so if you have to supplement a little bit so you can feel comfortable and relax with your sweet little one at home, then do so.  Give yourself some time to just BE a family again, and things should settle in.

Have you read Trim Healthy Mama?  If not, it has a lot of great information for nursing mothers.
Mama of four... one of which was in the NICU for a couple weeks.  Nothing as traumatic as your family has faced, but I can empathize with the pain of a hospital stay.  <3

my 5 month old daughter had open heart surgery a little over a month ago.We will be getting out of the hospital in the next couple of days. I too am wondering if anyone has any wisdom with cleansing the liver, building back up the immune system geared toward the heart. Also they have been "fortifying" my breast milk with formula. When we get home I know I need to get some extras in her but I would rather not do it with formula. Any advice would be much appreciated as this is a whole new realm for me.
