Re: Milk needed during the day/Pumping enough

The only additional suggestion I would make to the other wonderful advice above is to finish each pumping sessions with some hand expression. Babies eat by suction and compression, and pumps work mainly by suction only. An LC told me that hand expression can increase supply 65%- not too shabby! has some great information, including a handout that you can give your dcp about bottlefeeding with breastmilk. You are doing a great job and deserve some serious kudos for the effort you are making! Lots of hugs and support for you mama!
