I will be going back to work FT in a few weeks due to "dh" wanting a divorce (another topic entirely but it is worth mentioning here<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/redface.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="Embarrassment"> ) and need to build up a stash NOW! I only have 2 bags in the freezer and I am moving across the country in 13 days so it will not stay fresh obviously!<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/lol.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="lol"> I normally pump once a day and it is fine now but I am worried about having to build up a supply in a short amount of time. Any tricks? Thoughts? I am also tandeming my toddler if that is a factor...thanks!!!

How about getting some more milk tincture and taking that to up your pumping supply? I'm just guessing since I can't pump more than an ounce no matter what, but if you are already successfully pumping it seems like a little boost would help you pump more. Probably add a couple more pumping sessions too.

More pumping sessions and pumping while nursing. Also, hate to say it, but I've heard a lot of success pumping in the middle of the night or EARLY in the morning...<br><br>
good luck!<br><br>

Start building up supply a week before the move. I know you'll want to do the actual saving of the milk in 13 days, but you'll want to get your supply up the week before you move. That way, when you start saving it, it'll already be high.<br><br>
Remember to get enough to eat, and to pump extra in between feedings.<br><br>
Your body will increase supply to meet demand... so demand more.
