Can anyone help me how to have more breastmilk cos i've realised that mine is getting very little. Even when i've tried to pump it out, i've only manage to gt 1 ounce of milk. I gave birth in March and would hope to breastfeed her longer. Do hope to give her the best out of breastfeeding. Thank you!
okie thanks! I'll try that method
more dairy products - fresh milk, cheesecake, etc.
what really worked for me:
latch one side and pump the other at the same time.
eat oats more often. I had the same problem and bought a packet of sacred tea. It worked to boost my milk supply and at the same time I had to pump and get my daughter to suckle often. Once the supply is re-established I need not continue drinkning the tea. I have an extra packet still unopened. If you would to like try it, I can sell it at a discounted price. I bought it at $38 per packet from this website :
Singapore- Origins Jamu Massage - product-ingredient sacred tea

take food like oatmeal (instant) ones for convenient, milo, barley water, yoghurt, drink plenty of water and rest well. Can also take supplement like fenugreek or buy domperidone from guardian pharmacy or GP..
i use to get onli 10 ml of milk at first... now i get around 80ml... you have to pump every 3h... dont b early or late...
The best n effective way is to latch more often. Like what others have suggested, take more fluid n rest enough. Fyi, there are a lot of factors that affect the amount that you have pumped. Factors like stress, not getting used to e pump, not relaxed enough when you pump, time spent on pumping, etc. I remembered i only managed to pump 10-30ml when i first started pumping n i can now pump 150- 200ml per pump. Try to relax n keep your mind off while pumping. You will be fine, just like us :-)
