I want to increase my milk supply on one side ( its significantly smaller) and baby is getting frustrated. How long do I pump for and how often?

I heard drinking a beer a day would help. It's been so long that i don't remember which ingredient helps though. My sister drank one beer a day and was able to nurse for 18 months. I, on the other hand, could not stand the taste and only nursed for 6 months.

if you really want to pump to increase on just one side then try 4-6 times throughout the day for 5-10 minutes per session.  continue to offer that breast first though with each feeding and dont pump that side until after you have tried nursing.
