Hello I'm after natural ways to increase milk supply if you could help me. Anything but brewers yeast as I can't stand the stuff

Skin to skin with baby
Feed baby more
drink water and look after yourself
Do you have a reason you are worried about your supply?

fenugreek worked for DW. makes your BO smell like honey too. She had sweet smelling arm pits

Yes express using medella double pump. This is what lactation consultant would recommend. (You can hire them if only for short term use or to see if it works for you)

Drink heaps and heaps and heaps of water. Seems like a silly simple thing to mention ...but honestly that worked wonders for me.
You should be having about 2 liters a day BFing. Something like that.
Also a friend said raw almonds contain something that can help increase supply. I had a small handful a day and honestly I think it helped. There's a heap of foods that are linked to milk supply like oatmeal etc. try googling 'galactagogues' and tweak your diet. I would go down this road before taking mottilium or anything IMO
Good luck xxx

Drinking lots of water, making sure I was eating enough and taking fenugreek tablets helped me a lot when I was struggling to pump enough milk for DS when I returned to work.

Flaxseed meal, oats, lactation cookies without the brewers yeast, extra pumping, putting baby on boob every time it opens it's mouth.

I'm exclusively pumping as bub won't latch that's why I'm worried about my supply I only produce enough milk atm for his next feed so wanting to produce more. I try to express more often but with 3 other kids sometimes it doesn't happen. Thank you for all your ideas.

have you seen a LC about your baby's attatchment? the only natural way i can think of to boost supply would be frequent feeding then pumping 30-60mins after a feed.
eating and drinking. sleeping.
