Re: Increase supply to give extra to mom
Would your mom let her baby nurse from you? That would be the best way to up your supply, your body would just respond to having another baby nursing and increase its milk production accordingly. I just wondered, since it's your mom and it sounds like you guys are close, maybe you guys would both be cool with that.
Of course there is also pumping more frequently and saving the milk for her. Your body would respond to increased pumping by upping your milk supply. And there are certain dietary supplements that increase milk production, like fenugreek or mothers milk tea. Eating oatmeal helps, but on its own probably wouldn't increase your supply significantly enough to feed another baby.
