Re: increase supply for pumping?

I am told to pump every 2/3 hours for 15 minutes. {I actually do 30 minutes most times. 20 minutes atleast}. My supply has definitely increased, but you do lose a lot of sleep if you follow that schedule. I pump twice at night now and more during the day. I need to stay on schedule during the day more too, but with going out, doctor's appointments, sleeping, etc.. it is kinda hard.
I am using a Medela Symphony Pump that we are renting from the hospital. The LC said they were the best for exclusively pumping or having preemies.

Good luck to you!
