Pumping late in the game.

Am trying to increase my supply so I can pump for a family member who is on a med that makes her unable to bf. my ds is already 8 months old, so is it still possible to start pumping for 2???

How awesome of you! Are you already pumping for your ds? I would think if you pump the other side as much as possible while ds eats and I'd he goes a long stretch at night without nursing you could pump sometime during that. I take classes and stock my freezer by pumping 3 hra after Rayne goes to bed, right before i go to bed. If she wakes up shortly after i pump i feed her the bottle. Mothers milk tea and oatmeal can boost your supply as well

I've never really pumped before! So I'm trying to pump right after every feed. Ds is a boob ornament from 7-7 though so I can't pump at night. I got some fenugreek today so hopefully that helps.....I'll go grab some oatmeal tomorrow! Thanks.

Re: Pumping late in the game.

I've noticed that if I pump one side while my daughter eats on the other, I get a lot more milk. Good luck!

I think its possible. I always get more when I compress or message my breast during pumping.
