    I don't have any advice. I came across your post and just wanted to say that you might be my hero. Nursing two babies and pumping!

    Congratulations on your beautiful babies!

    Hi I am new here. I might have some tips for increasing milk supply.

    Try drinking plent of water atleast 10 glasses a day. Fenugreek tea, and mother milk tea have been known to help.

    Also what has increased mine, to the point where i think i have too much is pumping after feedings. I did a power pump the other day where I pumped after each feeding. I think that definitely works to increase the supply.

    Also putting the baby at the breast on demand is a definite for increasing supply.

    Remember supply and demand
