Re: Bringing my supply back up after supply lessened
Welcome to the forum and congratulations on the new baby! It is absolutely possible to bring your supply back. Milk supply isn't something you can just lose and then never get back. It's something that will grow if you give your body the proper cues, which means either frequent nursing by a baby who is able to nurse well, or frequent pumping using a high-quality pump, or both. What sort of machine is coming in the mail? You want to use a very good pump, and for most women, a hospital-grade rental is the ideal machine. You also want to pump frequently, aiming for 8-10 sessions per day, or more if possible. Which is a lot, especially when you have a baby to care for. But pumping at around the same frequency that a newborn baby eats is the best way to bring your supply back up.
Will baby still latch and nurse? If not, this link may be helpful: http://kellymom.com/bf/concerns/child/back-to-breast/
