I lost my supply due to me getting strep and so I am trying to up my supply again. I am also taking fenegreek to help. I was just wondering if there was anybody who had good success with a pumping schedule?

Ok, so you are asking about getting back your stash. Supply and getting a stash are 2 different things as pump output is not reflective of supply.

To get a stash, try pumping first thing in the morning. Also, you can nurse baby and pump on the other breast.

Yes I continued to BF and my LO is 4 months. Since I got sick we had to use what I had in the freezer. So I was asking to see if there was anybody who has successfully built a stash with a pumping routine

A few questions:
Did you continue to nurse and/or pump while you were sick?
How old is your baby?
Are you putting baby to breast at all?
