Nurse on demand, even if you just fed the baby a half hour ago. If baby is producing 4-6 diapers a day, they are usually getting enough. Very often a fussy baby is mistaken for a hungry baby, when the fussiness is either normal newborn stuff, overactive letdown and oversupply (too much milk, flowing too fast against their throat) or sometimes sensitivities to a protein in mom's diet (like dairy). Try to avoid pumping before your supply is regulated (6 weeks or so) and pump output is no indication AT ALL how much milk you are producing. And soft breast that no longer feel feel are a very good thing as your supply regulates (engorgement will signal the breasts to slow down production. Soft breasts signal for more production). And every ounce of a supplement Lu give baby is an ounce your body will determine does not need to be made. Very rarely does a mom not make enough milk to support her baby. The first few days after birth, your baby doesn't need milk (breastmilk or formula); they only need small "sips" of colostrum.

With my 1st too babies I never got enough milk to satify them, does anyone have any suggestions for helping my milk come in? I really want to be able to breast feed more with my 3rd baby.

alphalfa tablets, take 3 every night, after 2 or 3 days will double milk supply.  is good for moms and babies too, is full of all known vitamins for man.

tried to pass this on in another post, but some didn't want to know how to double their milk supply after all, or ?

Oh, it wasn't that, sharla. We've had some moms come in to try to sell things here, and so some of our members are a little leery of new names touting products.

My son is 4 days old and I have been exclusivly breast feeding. My milk is just comimg in on my left side this morning but not on the right. Both my nipples have hard scabs on them. I have been seeing the lactation nurse every day and I am having good latches ( thats what I thought the problem was). I dont know if I should continue breast feeding with the scabs and also if there is anything I can use to make them heal faster. I have been using Medela tender care lanolin everyday, but it doesnt seem to be helping every more.  Thank you for helping. Lindsey

I am a Mom-to-Be with my 3rd child and I have some conerns about breastfeeding.

With my oldest (who is now 5) I did not breastfeed, due to the fact that i didn't seem to produce any milk at all. Then with my 2nd child (who is now almost 2) I tried to breastfeed, but he wouldn't latch on, so I pumped and he enjoyed it very much, but I stopped due to the fact that I didn't seem to produce enough for him to get enough to feed.

So now with my 3rd child, I am hoping to breastfeed completely, but I am afradi that I won't produce any or enough milk to be able to feed her properly.

I have watched videos and read blogs and articles to understand how to breastfeed and why I wasn't really able to breastfeed my ither 2 children, but I could use some "real live mom" advice that could help me in breastfeeding, when my new little addition arrives.


Thank you,

Tasha <3
