    Do you drink enough fluids during the day? When you breastfeed, your fluid requirements are much higher. It definitely affects my supply.

    That's cute j

    Here is the recipe I used http://www.**********.com.au/breastf...e#.UzPmye0azCR

    I drink crap loads of water, just wanted to see what this does to my supply. I'd love to have enough when Lincoln goes to bed to express a bottle to freeze.

    My mum made me some lactation cookies, that I wasn't keen on, but I tried some that tasted pretty good. They did nothing for my supply though

    Channy you could try fenugreek tablets instead. They helped my supply.

    They didn't work for me either, but nothing did.

    If nothing naturally is increasing your supply - try more pumping (post feeds). If that doesn't work motillium is a medication that increases some women's supply - prescription only.

    How long does he sleep for once he goes to bed. If he sleeps a few hours, you should be able to express as soon as he goes to sleep, and still have enough for when he wakes for his feed

    He sleeps from 9:30-4am generally. But when I try to express say at 11 I can barely get anything. Got a bit last night after eating a couple cookies tho yay!

    Have you tried hand expressing instead of using a pump?

    I always find it really hard to get anything if expressing in the evening. Heard your supply naturally drops at this time and I get far more in morning or afternoon. Not helpful if you want to increase evening supply though!
