Re: ? - Pumping Frequency and Time
Frequency is often found to be better for milk supply than length of each pumping session. An empty breast makes milk. A full breast tells the body that it doesn't need to make milk. So, if the milk sits in the breast for a longer period, the body will eventually slow down milk production. Initially, it appears that more milk is being produced, because more milk is expressed, but that amount often goes down to the previous level after several days, so that less milk is ultimately produced.
Switch nursing and nursing more often is often suggested to mothers trying to increase their supply, too.
