Hello everyone! A mom wrote in worried that her 3 month old is not getting enough milk, asking me how to produce more breast milk. I give my two cents in today’s video.
Since I did breastfeeding five babies for a combined total of 7 years, I feel confident saying that I had plenty of ups and downs. There were many times i felt that I had NO MORE MILK. When I continued to hydrate, keep my baby close, nurse, and pump, I would see that milk supply increase. So, if nursing is a priority for you, trust me that there is a lot you can do to improve your breast milk supply. Don’t give up. Milk can go down and milk can go up. This much I know to be true.
How to Produce More Breast Milk
In today’ video, I offer some tips. One of them has to do with breastfeeding and pumping, which in my view go hand and hand. When my babies were young, I would pump for just a little bit after each time I nursed. This helped to stimulate my breasts to produce milk and also allowed me to build up a nice little amount of frozen breast milk, which soothed my worries.
