How to Increase Your Breast Milk Supply

Here are eight useful tips and tricks to increase your breast milk supply. Whether you are pumping, nursing, or a combination of the two, these ideas will help improve your breast milk production.

Stay hydrated

If you are not producing enough breast milk, you should look at how much you are drinking. Water is preferable; you should avoid sodas, sugary drinks, and even sugary fruit juices.

Eat enough calories

Many mothers try to go on a diet to lose the extra baby weight, but what it really does is take away the calories needed to make healthy breastmilk for your baby.

Get a good double breast pump

Get a double breast pump. Not only does this save time, you also don’t lose the milk from the other side when a let-down occurs.

Have the right supplies

• Hands Free Pumping Bra. • Pumpin’ Pal Flanges. • A comfortable place to sit. • Coconut oil. • All-Purpose Nipple Ointment.

There are a few must-haves when pumping.

Set a schedule that fits your body

I try to set a schedule that works, and my body gets used to producing the milk at that time. In fact, if I am running late, I will still have let-downs during my scheduled pumping time.
