    Default Breastfeeding, expressing and work

    I need some help.

    I work 3 days a week and want to continue breastfeeding ds. I express during my lunch break but notice that I am not able to get as much as I had expected. Ds feeds well on the other 4 days of the week and he feeds before and after work as well as overnight. Any suggestions on keeping up my supply. I am desperate not to end our breastfeeding journey just yet :-(

    Have you tried looking at a picture of him while you express? I have heard this can help?

    Continue what you're doing and leave whatever ebm you can and get daycare to increase solids instead of offering more milk feeds. Would that work?

    Or can you express twice per work day? Or add in an express every night after bed to be able to add to his daycare feeds?

    I do look at pictures of him and video.

    He is 8 months now so solids going well mostly he has been a bit off with starting daycare and not eating as much

    I try express once he has gone to bed at night.

    I am back on fenugreek and blessed thistle. I drink nursing tea and upped my water intake
