    Default Can I get my milk supply back up with a pump?

    My doctor asked me not to breast feed for three days because he wanted to see whether my daughters jaundice was breast milk jaundice or whether it was caused by something more serious. I fell behind in pumping and now my milk supply has lessoned. When I started breast feeding again my breasts were so sore that I continued giving her formula a couple of times a day. I want to cut out the formula completely. Is it possible to get my supply back up with a good pump?

    Is the baby still nursing at the breast?
    If so I would just cut out the bottles one at a time for a few days?
    can you take the baby to bed and nurse as much as she is willing to. a few extra times.. in a few days your supply should be back up to where it was before. drink lots of water and eat oatmeal ( that seams to help most moms)
    count diapars 6 Plus wets in 24 hours.

    good luck you can do it!

    Maybe try the breast first. Babies are usually best at increasing supply.
