  • How do you mean it's not coming in like it should? How do you know you're not making enough? If you're judging by how much you pump, you CANNOT judge accurately that way.

  • Around that age, I usually start freaking out thinking I'm not making enough for my baby. However, that is about the time my boobs really start to even out. They don't feel as "full" or big anymore because the milk production levels off and meets my baby's needs. Either that or they go through a growth spurt where they eat much more often and seem to be hungry. The more you nurse, the more milk you will make.

  • They do make nautral teas that help promote breastmilk , i dont think there is nor would i trust a pill that does it... Just make sure ur eating, u MUST eat healthy food lots of water. Good Luck u can call a lactaid nurse or ask ur doc

  • Are you talking about a let down or your total amount of milk?

  • Yes, I can't really advise you until I know what you are talking about. Can you get specific?
