<p>Do you have any advice on how to bring back my supply?</p>
<p>I have 9 month old Twins, and older children and basically, was forced to give up before I wanted to.</p>
<p>I want to bring back my supply, I have a Tommee Tippee electric pump, shall I just pump?</p>
<p>How long do you pump for and how long should this process take?</p>
<p>Is there any herbal medication or suchlike that can help speed the process along?</p>
<p> </p>
<p>Thanks :)</p>

<p>You should get a double electric pump (preferable a hospital grade pump).  Fenugreek is one supplement that helps as well as brewer's yeast.  You should pump for 15 to 20 minutes every 2 hours.  Skin to Skin contact may also help.</p>

<p>You may want to look into an herb called goat's rue (french lilac).  It worked for my low supply, but I had low supply from the get go.  this book was very informative <a href="http://www.makingmoremilk.com/" target="_blank">http://www.makingmoremilk.com/ </a> as was this web site  <a href="http://www.lowmilksupply.org/" target="_blank">http://www.lowmilksupply.org/</a></p>
