How To Help Increase Your Breast Milk Supply

I'm sure there aren't many of us that didn't question or doubt our supply of breast milk at some point during our breastfeeding journey. As supply regulates and our breasts are no longer engorged or feeling as full at times, it can cross the mind as to whether we are still producing enough breast milk.

So how do we know if our supply is truly low?

A great indicator is your baby's weight gain, but as baby gets older the weigh ins become less often so here are some other signs of a good milk supply:

  • Contentment after feeding from the breast
  • Good heavy wet nappies and frequent dirty nappies too
  • Hearing baby swallowing while feeding and other signs of milk transfer like milk spilling out of their mouth when they come off the breast.
The question is - once we've identified a drop in supply - how do we go about increasing our supply back to what our baby needs?

What can I do if I suspect my milk supply is low?

Breastfeeding and supply requires a holistic approach including ensuring baby is feeding and latching correctly and frequently, hydration, mother's wellness and diet.

To take out the guess work I have put together a free PDF download with some top tips that I personally found useful if I was feeling a little 'empty' - these have been tried and found useful by other mums too!. I hope there are a few wee gems in there for you. Click below to get your copy!
