Help me understand. Are you currently nursing your youngest? Or are you trying to relactate? If you already are nursing, why are you pumping and taking the herbs? I am trying to figure out how this would work. Do I need to be making more milk for the baby beforehand? My milk won't increase on it's own once baby starts nursing, too?

I looked on asklenore but most all of it seems to be for people who want to establish a new milk supply for an adoption. I haven't found anything about if you already have milk what, if any, steps need to be taken. I will check out the forum and see if there is anything there for this situation.
