    Question How can I increase my evening supply?

    I think I have finally gotten close to being able to EBF. (We are still doing weekly weight checks as DS isn't gaining like doc wants, but his diaper output is decent.) I have plenty of milk at night (from about 10:30 p.m. on), so I always get up once in the night to pump (I am pumping right now in fact, and it's 2 a.m.). For the past week, pumping at night has given me enough milk to supplement in the evenings (around 7 p.m. until bedtime). But I ALWAYS seem to be too low on milk in the evenings... if I could only get my supply up to what it is during the morning and early afternoon, I think I would have enough milk to no longer need to supplement in the evenings!

    My question is:

    Is there any way to increase supply for a specific targeted time of day, like in the evenings?

    Thank you!
