Low milk supply? We can help

Feed more frequently

The more you empty your breasts, the more they will need to produce breastmilk.

The more you feed your baby (and empty your breasts), the more milk your body will produce. If your milk supply is low, you should consider letting go of plans to get your baby on a schedule or reduce nighttime feedings, in favor of feeding your baby whenever he or she is hungry. By doing so, your body should react by producing more milk.
