With baby number 3 your milk may come in a little sooner than day three, but not much. Your baby needs the colostrum from you anyway. To facilitate successful nursing, make sure you nurse often and alternate which side you start on. Drink plenty of water, get as much rest as you can. Skin to skin contact with the baby will help too. Talk to the lactation specialist about your problems with nursing. They will have suggestions. You can take fenugreek, goat’s rue, blessed thistle, fennel, and milk thistle, which are all herbal supplements to help with your supply. But with any medication, check with your doctor first! There are prescription medications that help with milk supply too, so start talking to your doctor about it soon.

Here is a link the the breastfeeding moms community on here. They will probably be able to advise you better than the welcome page. Good luck!!

You do have to wait until the baby is born to work on your supply, but the ladies here should have plenty of tips.

Your milk does not come in until 3 days AFTER BIRTH. There is nothing you can do while you are pregnant to get milk now.
