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!
Crunchy Christian liberal and WAHM to my two crazy superheroes, River (10/06) and Rainn (4/09), and my sweet Briar Rose (7/12). For Sale: Girly side-snapping Mutt and DnF fitteds, Maya Wrap.
