  • ​How To Increase Milk Supply With A Breast Pump

    Often new mothers think of breast pumping as a painful experience. If you're not able to breast feed you baby for what ever reason, the next best thing would be to consider breast pumping. This article will share some tips on how to increase your breast milk supply and make breast pumping an easier to increase milk supply with a breast pump

    The first thing you need to consider is how to make a good breast pump selection, which also addresses how to increase breastmilk production. You have to keep in mind what your needs are when searching for the idea breast pump. Will you pump occasionally, once a day, or pump several times a day. The needs of the mother who will be pumping several times during the day will drastically be different than the mother who will be pumping occasionally.

    If you are a working mother and intend on returning to work, make and effort to start breast pumping about 3 weeks before returning. This will stimulate your breast to produce more milk, and you might even try breast feeding your baby on one breast while pumping the opposite breast. The breast that the baby is feeding from will be stimulated to produce more milk, and pumping that same breast will also increase the stimulation of the breast producing hormones your body produces as a result of such stimulation.

    Be consistent with your breast pumping routine. If you find that you are limited on time, pump for only a short period of time i.e. 5 minutes. The key is to consistently stimulate the breast to produce more breast milk; otherwise you might get poor results if you don't regularly stimulate your breast by pumping or by breast feeding. Try pumping your breast about every 2 to 3 hours for best results.
