Re: Plesase Help - Need to Increase Supply asap

mine took a huge dive when i started trying to lose weight so I was eating bars more often and then realized they had soy. if you are eating too much soy, you can lose over half your supply fast. i was over producer to 1oz a feed. to avoid formula or goats milk, I used reglan for a couple days (thru dr & milk went up in 24 hrs) then I switched to domperidone. got that thru inhousepharmacy.biz. i love that place, i order several things from them now over 7 yrs with no issues.

i also really liked mothers milk tea. it helped me but not enough when you drop so much. typically if my baby had a growth spurt I would drink that for 3 days and have a ton by day 3.
tons of water, sleep, and oatmeal is helpful. also make sure you natural fat is up.

If you want to make more, nurse more! The best way to increase is natural stimulation!

This really does make a difference.

I also ditto what the previous poster said about checking your pump parts. If they haven't been replaced in 8 months they could be a huge culprit.
What a fantastic idea.

I'm going to try these tips as well, I start work Monday and pumping would help but so far my manual Medea hurts to use so bad that I haven't gotten any milk out any tips? I'm 5 weeks pp (almost) and although I'm taking my baby with me to work, it'd help a lot to supplement with a bottle (ill be working 4 hours a day)

Call your insurance company and see if they pay for a double electric pump!
