Milk Supply Pages

A lot of working mothers have trouble pumping or expressing as much as their baby is eating during the day. Occasionally this is a problem of truly insufficient supply, but more often the problem can be remedied with more efficient pumping, smart scheduling, avoiding supply busters, talking things over with your childcare provider, and using your freezer stash wisely! Even if your milk supply has decreased over the weeks or months you have been working, it can always be rebuilt. You really can provide as much breastmilk as you want to for your baby!

But first - why do you think you have a supply problem? If it's because your baby is consistently drinking more milk than you can pump - this is the page for you. However, if it's because your doctor is concerned that your baby is not gaining enough weight, you should read the information on the growth curves page first. There may not be a problem.
