Thread: Nursing 15 month old pumping for 3 year old

    Default Nursing 15 month old pumping for 3 year old

    Hi! I'm currenting nursing my 15 month old and pumping for my almost three year old. I try to pump about 12 ounces a day to give him a cup of milk at nap and bedtime. I'm struggling now that my period has returned with pumping enough milk. Is it possible to increase my supply at this point? Anyone pumping for a older toddler?

    You can increase production at any point- theoretically.

    First, trouble shoot your pump and maybe change when you pump.
    Assuming your baby is nursing fairly frequently and you are pumping on top of that, milk removal is probably often enough. So galactagogues might be something you want to look into. Kellymom.com has reliable info, but somewhat limited.
