1) u tried hand expressing instead? Some mamas have a higher yield using hand expression. 2) u checked your flange size is correct? Ill-fitting flange size can also result in low yield. 3) do breast massage before and during pumping (can search for YouTube vids). 4) take milk boosting food such as salmon, avocado, chia seeds, etc 5) visit a lactation consultant

yes i hand express all the time. but still only drip2. :(

😭😭😭😭😭 I feel you!!! I used to pump hundreds in a day! Now I can only express 15ml in 24hrs you know! And my baby doesn’t want to latch anymore. I still keep going because I can mix with her solid food or put in food cube tray for soothing teething gums with whatever little amount of milk I can get.

I was given Fenugreek by hospital but it can cause gas in babies. I took for 2-3 months. I can yield 300ml on 1 pump session when I took that. But baby had serious gas. You can try Legendairy brand also, good reviews.

1. Correct flange 2. Power pump twice a day. Pump more often. 3. Drink more water 4. Eat more milk boaster (salmon, Milo - different things work for different ppl) 5. Baby can latch more often if possible.
