"Oatmeal, power pumping, lots of water, lots of protein, and making sure the pump flanges fit well can help too"

"Hello I breastfeed my seven week old son and he was a big baby weighing 10 pounds when I had him. I am worried that I don't produce enough milk even though during the day I nurse him every two hours and during the night twice since he…"

"Hi Laura, I used to pump in my car during my lunch break. It was a good 1/2 way point during the day. Also I'd look up your local LeLache group and call them or go to a meeting. I drink Mothers Milk and take Fenugreek and Blessed Thistle herbs.…"

"Thank you for the encouraging words! Sadly I think breastfeeding might be failing. We had a large amount of breastfeeding difficulties in the beginning and I was told I have flat nipples, which makes it near impossible for him to get a good latch. I…"

"Thank you for the reply! I should clarify: it's not so much my employer...I know they would let me, it's just my shifts are often very busy and I am sometimes the only one in my department, which means I eat my lunch while I work, so…"

"Thank you! It's nice to hear this kind of support from a lactation specialist. I should have re-worded the pumping at work thing...it's not that I'm not allowed. I know my employer would allow it, but most of my shift is very fast…"

"I'm surprised you can't pump at work either.  Even if you aren't given a specific place or amount of time to do so, there are laws about giving employees breaks during so many hours at work.  If you invest in a electric pump…"

"Why can't you pump at work??? By law your boss/company needs to give you time and a place for this! You should do your best to make this happen. Your consistency with milk extraction is key to getting more milk. If you can't get this going…"

"Hi. I am a lactation specialist in CA. With the info that you have I can tell you this...yes, normally anyone can boost their supply. It will take ongoing milk extraction (either by pump or baby latching). Baby's saliva has an enzyme that helps…"

Can you rebuild your milk supply after it started to decrease?

For various reasons I have had to stop breastfeeding and resort to pumping as much milk as I can for my 7 week old. I have had an "ok" supply...I can never get a large amount of milk with pumping so I supplement with formula when he is still hungry afterwards. But over the last few days, between work and other obligations, I have not been able to pump except for a few times. When I finally was able to pump this morning, I got a really pathetic amount out.I wanted to know if it's possible to…See More

Laura replied to dalvarez's discussion Tips for increasing milk supply, please help!
"I have a similar problem with pumping and have spent many pumping sessions crying over what pathetic amounts I was getting. From what I've learned, not every woman's body responds well to pumping. I've met other mothers that know for…"
