 kellymom.com is a great resource. Google the recipe for lactation cookies and make those. Add oatmeal, flax seed and brewers yeast to your diet.

Herbal treatments are natural. Also, the more you nurse the more you produce. The more you pump the more you produce.

 sorry, I didnt read post, just title.. in that case, no fenugreek...(it really works tho!)

Power pumping is done ina few ways.. One is where you Pump for 10 minutes, wait a few minutes, pump another 10 minutes, wait a few minutes, and then pump another 10 minutes. Another way I was taught was to pump for 10 minutes every hour... Do it for a few days..

Why do you think you are not producing enough?

Herbs are natural (some of them anyway) ... 

When my son came home from the NICU after 117 days, I used Fenugreek to bring my milk supply back, and pumped for as long as I could stand. It took about a week or so, but I was able to give him breastmilk for another three months. (He was a micro preemie, and was unable to bf. He was tube fed)  Good luck!
