Re: Increasing Milk Supply
Sounds like your working really hard to provide breastmilk for your baby. That's awesome, and any amount of BM is great.
Consider taking herbs like fenugreek and/or blessed thistle
The most important - more stimulation. The more demand (from either nursing or pumping), the more supply you'll have.
You could also talk to your doctor about some prescription meds to increase milk supply.
And check out the pumping threads for tips on how to pump more effectively. A lot of those ladies are very experienced and can recommend some pumping schedules, techniques.
Keep up the good work and good luck.
