Re: HELP!!! MY MILK IS NOT COMING IN ENOUGH...
Okay, when you're pumping to increase supply, it's going to work best if you do the following:
- Use a high quality pump with correctly sized shields. I personally suggest using a hospital grade pump, and having a consultation with a lactation consultant so that you know you have the right size of shields. (I also think that a consult with a LC, preferably an IBCLC, is vital for you because nursing shouldn't be making you so sore that you resort to bottles and formula.)
- Pump after nursing. 3-5 times a day is a good start, but you probably want to be pumping more along the lines of 8-10 times per day. I know that means a lot of hard work, especially when you have a baby to care for. But it's the absolute best way to increase supply.
