Increasing milk supply for breast feeding at least two babies

Posted on December 7, 2012. Filed under: Uncategorized | Tags: , , , , |

Three things affect milk supply:  1)  keeping fluids up; 2) trying to keep stresses down, and 3) frequent nursings.  One of the ways to help build milk supply is to pump after each feed.  Even if you only get 1/2 ounce, save it, freeze it, add to it and within a short time you will have enough breast milk frozen and stored so that someone else can help feed a baby or two.  A breast, in truth, never completely empties.  It just gets ‘less full.’  Pumping after a feed, including through the night, helps increase milk supply.
