    Default How long to see an increase

    On average, how long does it take to see an increase in milk supply from increasing the demand, dramatically (ie: Pumping after each nursing session to increase milk, pumping for a missed feding, adding a pumping session to the middle of the night, etc.) If one were to do those things, would it take days or weeks to see an increase?

    Curious.

    Thanks
    Lisa

    Our bodies respond very quickly to increased demand (but very slowly to decreased demand, for obvious reasons) -- usually within 24 to 48 hours.

    HTH!
