My daughter was born 32 weeks gestation I am pumping due to her not latching on. I am pumping but wasnt pumping right for several days due to her being in the hospital and had quite a bit for her and now I am pumping right I am not getting enough to feed her. What are somethings I can do to get my milk to come back in so that I can supple my baby?

was your milk in or has it not come in yet? It took almost a week for my milk to come in with both my children. Just keep pumping and working on her latching on. Drink plenty of water, everytime you look at a cup take a drink. Eat right and get plenty of rest. Keep pumping even if nothing comes out to keep them stimulated. Nurse her as often as you can then when she is done feeding use some warm compresses for about 10 to 20 minutes then pump for 10 minutes. If you get sore then use the cream before and after nursing and pumping. Talk to a latcation specialist at the hospital. Dont give up! I had to supplement both my children for a week to two when they where first born, once my milk came in I stopped with the formula. Good luck Honey and keep good spirits. God Bless!
