I need to go back to work and thus will be away from my baby. I haven’t invested much in pumping but i need to increase my output a lot in a very short period of time. Any ideas would be helpful
Power pump a few times a day and start pumping after every feed.
This works but take 2-3 day’s to deliver or try hot chocolate
It takes time to build up a good supply to pump. It’s not going to happen in one day unfortunately.
Body armour drinks have been a life saver for me to build up my supply quickly
Pump then latch baby on immediatly after u get off the pump itll create an over supply you can balance out after
Mine has been the pink drink from star bucks and lots of oats like oatmeal or oatmeal cookies of all kinds i ate a lot of no bakes lol
The more you pump or nurse, the more milk you will make because you will be telling your body that you need a lot of milk for your baby.
I swear by body armor drinks
Fenugreek might increase supply as well
Fenugreek is more known for drying up your supply, not work the risk
Baby only needs 1-1.5 oz per hour gone from mom so keep that in mine when pumping. Breastmilk changes for baby so you dont need to increase amount for bottles. Join a breastfeeding group or read up on websites like kellymom .com for other info!
Start pumping every 2 hours at least
Take 2tea spoon of cumin seeds fried in1 spoon of desi ghee put it in your soup or vegetable bowl It works as magic
Big bowl of real oatmeal
That’s a lot of pressure to put on yourself! Returning to work is tough as it is.
Try the tried and true as mentioned in the other comments. Pump at work, breastfeed at home. But, be prepared to give yourself a break and supplement if it becomes necessary due to low supply or your own mental or physical health. Take care of you!
Pump every 2 hours and feed baby in between. The more demand you create, the more supply your body should create. Also stay hydrated. It will probably take more than one day to really up your supply.
This is what I’m taking Day 2 and milk is coming in faster
Increase demand by nursing or pumping. However it typically takes about 3 days to increase supply not just one day.
Fenugreek and oatmeal. How much baby nurses at night effects how much milk is produced during the day so pump especially at night
Pump every hour. Milk is produced according to demand. The more that is expressed, the more the body will make.
