Re: Pumping schedule

I think you're doing the right thing by pumping after every feeding. You could try pumping on one side while he nurses on the other. I always pumped more in the middle of the night and in the morning. I pumped the least in the afternoon, so don't let that pumping session discourage you.

You could try taking some things to bring your supply up. Oatmeal cookies with special ingredients that help your body produce more milk. (Plus, it's the best excuse to eat cookies!) You could take fenugreek (available at GNC) to boost your supply, or take Mother's Milk Tea (also available at GNC). Make sure you're drinking lots of fluids and try not to stress about it (I know, easier said than done).

Good luck, mama! I remember those first few weeks. {{big hugs}}
