Re: Question Re: Blessed Thistle
When it comes to increasing supply, supplements are nice, but nothing- and I do mean NOTHING!- is as good as increasing the frequency and intensity of milk removal from the breast. It's usually easy to do that if you're home with your baby- just let the baby nurse on demand and that will do the trick. For a working mama, increasing frequency/intensity usually means pumping much more often, and using an excellent pump. If you're pumping every 3 hours, try pumping every 2 hours. And pumping after nursing when you are home with your baby. And using the best pump you can afford- a good double electric with correctly sized shields is the minimum.
