I am planning on bf a new baby due in 2 1/2 months that my wife is giving birth to, and I'm looking for advice about getting my supply up. I'm bf my biological daughter (she is three) 2 times a day, and right now I don't have a ton of milk. I actually weaned her for 2 weeks, while pumping to keep my supply, and then we decided she would go back to nursing. Anyway, while I was pumping, I pumped 2x a day and got about an 1oz on each side, each time I pumped. Has anyone been able to increase their milk supply after a few years of nursing, without pregnancy? I was thinking about a month before the due date I would just start to pump like crazy, is pretty much my plan. I'm not willing to have dd nurse more that 2x a day, cuz that is my personal limit with her. Also don't want to take any drugs. I have heard about herbs to take. Does anyone know if they really work/have any side effects?
I posted in the queer parents forum a while ago and got some good ideas, but hoping to get even more input here.
