Re: Experienced tandem nurser needs help!!!
Do you think you can add one pumping session in at home? Just designate a time and pump then, and freeze that milk for your freezer stash? Are you only worried about your freezer stash, or are you not pumping enough for the baby while you are apart?
A couple things - oatmeal, drinking enough water, eating enough protein can help.
Also, when Lilah was around 9 months old I needed to go down a horn size on each side. And maybe your pump parts need to be switched out? The little flanges?
Another thought - were you giving bottles to the baby and not pumping? Or did you give the stash to your older daughter? If you were giving bottles to the baby and not pumping, you really need to pump a bunch at home to get your supply back up, I think. Can you pump after a few feedings every day? I know it's hard with a baby and an older child.
