    Milk Supply Increase?

    Moms, I BF and feed formula to my 1.5 month old; however, she's wanting to eat more so I find myself increasing her formula intake. Is it possible to increase my milk supply?

    yes, mother's milk tea, it takes 2 days for it to work. from Bumps 2 babes. i don't know if they sell it at mothercare. you can also stimulate your breasts by bumping in between feeds.

    Take a look at this thread:

    Pitiful supply of breastmilk. Help!

    I'd highly recommend fenugreek.

    Also, if you can, do breastfeed directly, as this will help stimulate the milk glands more and it is a matter of "supply and demand." :)

    Good luck.

    The more you breastfeed or express, the more milk you will have. She could be going through a growth spurt. As Buckeroo suggested above, try feeding her directly from your breast as often as she wants. Your supply should increase within days.

    agree totally with the fenugreek part suggested by Buckeroo,since I would eat fresh fenugreek every meal and had never a problem....it seems you can get pills too for fenugreek intake

    I agree completely with the above. Feed your baby directly from the breast whenever she is hungry (when mine was 1-2 months I fed every 1.5 to 2 hours during the day, fortunately she slept some longer stretches at night!), and get some fenugreek as well.

    Also, drink plenty of water and eat whenever you are hungry. I even used to snack, eg, a piece of fruit or a yoghurt, after every night feed I was so hungry. And try to rest when you can (I know, easier said than done!)
