Quoting ~Mrs.SoldierBoy~:" I do Have been for over 9 months. I don't do anything, I've always had a pretty good supply. You can ... [snip!] ... can pump more often or get the Mother's Milk Tea. I've never tried it but my best friend did and said it worked really good."
Quoting ~Cullen & Ridley's Mommy~:" Thanks! I will definitely try the tea. DD is only 3 weeks but we have had some issues lately, so I've ... [snip!] ... I've been mostly pumping but I can only get a little over 2oz every time I pump but she is eating almost 4oz at each feeding. "
Quoting ~Cullen & Ridley's Mommy~:" Are there any momma's who only or mostly pump for their child(ren)? If you only pump, how do you manage to keep your supply up, or increase your supply? "I have a three week old son and I only pump. My son doesn't want to breastfeed and its a little upsetting but pumping is alot easier. I also have a two year who demands alot of attention. I pump after every feeding which is every two hours.I am watching because I want to increase my supply I currently only get about 3 oz in my right boob each pump and about 2 oz in my left.
Quoting loser mom:" I pumped exclusively for 6 months after I stopped nursing. I pumped every 3 to 4 hours, 10 - 15 minutes, ... [snip!] ... I started eating oatmeal every morning, and noticed an increase in my supply! Good luck...sorry for my rambling "
Quoting ~Cullen & Ridley's Mommy~:" I have an Avent Dual Pump, and I just heard about the oatmeal thing so I am trying to eat it...but its ... [snip!] ... I can get my supply to increase soon, I really don't like giving DD formula, and she doesn't seem to care for it much either. "
Quoting loser mom:" I've always heard good things about Avent pumps. Are you eating the oatmeal plain?? I always had ... [snip!] ... me. And I know what you mean about the formula, it killed me having to use it. I did mix it in with breastmilk when I could. "
