    I went back to work when dd2 was 7mths old and started to express milk from 6mths old. I pump everyday at 1pm when the girls nap. Even if I'm not working on a day I pump a bit and now my body has gotten used to the additional supply need.

    The first week I was getting 30-50ml. Now I get 100-150ml per pump at 1pm.

    Speaking of warm showers when I was expressing I used to put a heat wheat on my chest before expressing. That used to help a lot.

    My top tip (and something I've only found out tonight) is that quinoa seems to be a great milk booster! I've had quiona flake bake for breakfast the last two mornings, and quinoa with dinner last night.
    Tonight I gave DS his dream feed and still managed to pump another 70ml afterwards. Unheard of for me in the evenings, normally he fusses at the boob because there's no milk stored up in the afternoon and he has to work for it. That didn't happen at all today!

    So I definitely recommend giving quinoa a try. You can get it in the health sections of most supermarkets now and you can substitute it in pretty much any recipe that calls for oats. Apparently the high level of complete proteins in it is what does it.
    Whatever it is, it's certainly made my milk supply shoot through the roof. I haven't done anything else differently.

    I actually eat quinoa a lot, but haven't noticed a change. I love quinoa!
