Pumping

Will empty milk in a breast during each pumping increase even more milk supply?

Not necessarily. Emptying milk from the breast is to prevent engorgement. Drink more fluids and fenugreek supplements to help increase milk supply.

Yes. So if you don't want the milk supply to increase, I suggest you pump only when engorged and let your baby latch the rest of the time.

Yes you are telling your boobs that they need to make more milk

Super Mum

Yes! The more you remove milk, the more milk your breast will make.

Yes! It sends a signal to your body to produce milk faster

Yes. So have to pump frequently. Best is 2-3hr apart
