Re: A Little Help For A Pumping Mom?

A few things, mama. And good for you!
-Make sure you're using a hospital grade electric pump (you can rent one from a hospital); some mamas need the extra stimulation when they work and are away from baby so long
-Try an herbal tincture, Motherlove Herbals makes one called "More Milk". Take it religiously for a few days and try super pumping for a day or two (pumping every 2-3 hours) to get your supply perked up.
I worked at a breastfeeding resource store for about a year until we closed recently so I've helped lots of mamas in your situation. This usually does the trick! Good luck and good for you, mama!
