Re: I'd appreciate your advice
If you're not ready to be done providing milk for your baby, then you aren't done. If just comfort nursing works for both of you, then continue that. If you'd like to increase your milk supply, there are many things you can do.
What kind of pump are you using? You should be using a good double pump, preferably one that you rent, as it will help to increase your supply more than a pump that you'd buy at a store.
You'll want to pump as often as possible - up to every two hours, if you have time. Nurse or pump like this on the weekends, too.
Some other things that mothers have found will increase their milk supply include eating oatmeal (not instant), taking fenugreek and/or blessed thistle tablets (3 tablets,3x/day), and staying hydrated.
The most important thing to do is to tell your body that it needs to make more milk. The way to do this is to remove milk by nursing or pumping.
