  1. I wish to continue with extended breast feeding till 2 years however, my milk supply went down at around 7 months postpartum because i was not able to get time to breast feed due to demands at work.

    However, i wish to increase my breast milk supply so that we can continue till year two or even three.
    Another set back is that i was put on night duty for four months. the shifts range between 2 to 3 nights which has really decreased my supply. but tomorrow will be my last night duty.

    When i am at home i breast feed her as often as she wants.

    Kindly advise on how to increase my supply.

    Thank you.

  2. I liked it

  3. We chose the name Norah because it came up at a dinner party and we love Norah Jones’s music. After looking up the meaning of the name, we loved it even more. Norah means “light” and as our second baby, we loved the idea of her bringing more light to our family.

  4. We found the name Norah about 3 weeks before I was due. We had culled through thousands of names it seems like, including Nora, but hadn’t found one we both liked. We were using a website that flashed names one after the other (tinder-esq i guess) just to get ideas, when we came across Norah. Like I said before, we had seen Nora before, even had a friend name her baby Nora about two months before us, but Norah felt like a completely different name to us. Funny to think how a simple addition of an extra letter really changed the name for us.
