Low Milk Supply


My daughter is 3 months old and I only pump about 3-4 ounces total per pumping. Is there anything I can do to help increase supply?



Pumping 3-4 ounces per pumping session when your baby is 3 months, is actually fairly normal. Pumping isn't as efficient at getting milk out of your breasts as your baby is, so the amount you pump isn't always representative of how much your baby eats when she feeds at the breast. If you would like to increase your supply, the best way to do so would be to add additional pumping sessions. You can add a session after your first feed in the morning, as this is a time when most moms find they are very full, or you can add a session an hour or two after you put your daughter down for the evening. Milk supply is all about supply and demand. The more you pump and feed, the more milk your body will make.

All the best,
