  • The more you pump or feed her, the more your body will produce. Fenugreek is supposed to help boost milk supply. The tea is good & has a maple flavor.

  • You should drink more milk yourself and pump as much as you can.

  • Drink water, juices...be careful w/ the citric fruits, not to cause acid reflux. When u r breastfeeding pay attention to what u r doing. When I was pumping I notice that when I was watching tv or on computer my milk would be almost gone, but as soon as I thought of my baby the milk would pour it.

  • Talk to your Dr about taking Fenugreek. That is what my Dr had me do. It is a natural herb, and you can get it at a health food store. When I took it, within a couple of days I went from one or 2 onces each time I pumped to 6 or 7. It makes your breast milk smell like maple syrup, which is kind of weird. I did a LOT of research on it, and it is safe for babies... It is worth a try.

  • Watch out for drinking cow's milk, your baby might be alergic to it.
