Hi! Can you share a bit more about your situation and then hopefully I can come up with some strategies to help get baby back to breast! How old is baby? Are you currently pumping? Why was latching initially a challenge? And anything else you think I should know :)

How can I produce more breast milk?

Hi, Katherine -

Without knowing too many details about your specific situation, my best advice re: increasing your milk production is to empty your breasts more frequently (i.e., nurse or pump more each day).

You also want to be sure to stay well hydrated. THis can actually make a big difference.

Here's an article I wrote with more tips on boosting supply...hope it helps!

Hi, Amanda -
My best advice for increasing milk supply is to increase the frequency you empty your breasts. How often do you currently nurse or pump?
There are many different brands of teas marketed for nursing moms -- Mother's Milk Tea is just one of them. They usually have a combination of herbs like fenugreek, blessed thistle, goats rue. Most supermarkets have teas for nursing moms in the tea aisle. Good luck!
