  • I always tell breast feeding mamas oatmeal and drink lots of water. It worked for me!

  • Actually, that tea might be to maintain your supply... I don't remember! Pumping once in addition to all your feedings might work too, because it would signal your body to make more milk.

  • Eat and drink as you like. Oatmeal can help but understand that you may never see an extra drop at the pump. Pump output does NOT indicate supply. Only dipe count does that. If you're changing 6 dipes a daysupply is already perfect, and you can't improve on perfect.

  • A lactation consultant told me that taking a lot of fenugreek or drinking Mother's Milk Tea will increase your milk supply. It worked for me.
