Re: Help with increasing milk supply to store
I'm not quite sure I grasp what you want. Do you want to
a) nurse for a year, with a six month supply of expressed milk in the fridge for emergencies, or
b) nurse for 6 months, then wean your baby from the breast but continue to feed expressed milk until the 1 year mark?
Both are possible, and both have advantages and drawbacks. One of the biggest drawbacks of option b is that if you have a big power outage and your freezer stash defrosts, or your milk has a lipase issue which makes the stash unpalatable, you have no back-up option.
Anyway, if you can tell us what your plans are we can figure out how best to help you.
