Low milk supply? We can help

Focus on nursing

Sometimes, some dedicated time for yourself and your baby can make a big difference.

A great place to start trying to increase your milk supply is by setting aside a weekend (or a time when you have a partner or friend around to help) to take a “nursing vacation.” This means that instead of focusing on your to-do list, you focus entirely on your baby. Get as much skin-to-skin time as you can, and let your baby feed as much as he or she wants. This contact can not only increase your supply, it also gives moms much-needed rest and bonding time with baby.
