Re: Did you increase your milk??
Yes, the supply-increasing tricks do work- I know because I got my supply out of the toilet with them. They don't all work equally well, though. The following supply increasers tend to work very well: nursing more, pumping more frequently during the day, pumping after nursing when you're home with the baby, pumping at night when baby is sleeping (particularly if baby sleeps for long stretches), using a better pump, making sure your shields are correctly sized. Taking herbs and supplements, drinking teas, and staying hydrated all can help, but these steps tend to be significantly less effective than increased time and effort with the pump- which sucks, because if they worked really well, there'd be a lot fewer moms in your shoes. More time and effort with the pump isn't easy to achieve, but taking some fenugreek is a snap!
