breast pump will help if you are tired at night and just want a bottle already made.. and it will not stop the flow it is as if the babys is feeding it is still suction.. the milk i drink is regular milk that you buy at a grocery store breastfedding mothers need more milk to drink then pregnant mothers do so drink plenty ♥

Try to drink at least 8 glasses of water a day.
I was told oatmeal helps.
If you are finding you arent producing enough, speak with your doctor about it and he can give you something for it, or try Mother's Milk Tea.
Using a pump is alot different then the baby sucking and it will slow the flow but if you pump between feedings then it will help increase it. But breast feed more then pumping.

Before you start drinking milk consult a lactation specialist. When I was breast feeding I was told to try and stay away from milk. I was also told to drink plenty of water as this will have with production. Feeding on demand will also increase your supply.

Tasha, what kind of milk recomended? Are those formula powder milk for breastfeeding mother can do? I heard that using pump will reduce the production of breast milk, is that true?

go no longer than 4hrs between feeds during the day and 6hrs at night! the more often you feed the more milk you will produce. i pump once every night just to make sure i dont go too long without stimulating my breasts.

Feed on demand. Your body will produce enough milk for you baby if you feed him/her whenever they are hungry, usually every 2-3 hours.
