  • Pump as often as you can while she is nursing on the right pump the left, and nurse often, and then pump in between.

  • www.kellymom.com is a good resource..
    otherwise, you could talk to your kid's doctor/your ob... they can probably get you some info about a lactation consultant in your area...
    and pump!

  • they told me to "power pump" where you pump for ten minutes and rest for ten pump for ten and rest for ten. Even if your not getting anything do this for an hour. Thats what the lactation consultant told me to do and it worked good.. Pretty tedious but did the job

  • What makes you think your supply is low? For the latch problem, see LLL or an IBCLC. My kids both refused my left breast and were healthy EBF from one breast.
