Re: First time Mommy and new to forum
with the PP.
Milk supply is governed by the supply = demand equation. Demand more from your body by nursing more or pumping more, and your body will respond by making more milk. Usually when people "lose" their milk supply, the problem is the way they're managing that supply: either they're not nursing enough or they're not pumping enough.
Some questions for you:
- What's your goal? Do you want to get to a 100% breastmilk diet for your baby, or are you comfortable with using some formula?
- What sort of pump are you using? (Make, model, is it new or used?)
- What sort of birth control are you using? (Trust me, it's relevant.)
