Re: Expressing Milk
I agree with aprilsmagic. The key to maintaining or increasing milk supply is to remove as much milk as possible as often as possible. If you go a long time without pumping or nursing, your body will interpret that long period of no demand as a sign that it is making too much milk, and it will reduce supply.
Does your baby sleep through the night? Often mothers who work outside the home find that sleeping with their baby means improved milk supply because the baby feeds during the night, and babies who may resist nursing during the day may nurse peacefully when they are half-asleep and relaxed.
