  • I understand the fear or formulas you’re right I had it to and when my supply started to dwindle at two months I was and am flipping out I’m trying to pump more and get my supply up… Formula caused my Daughter Azalea �� to have Acid reflux and constipation and fussy but breast milk she was great thank you for this video I’m gonna try anything

  • I just had my baby a week ago…breastfeeding has been difficult so I started pumping over the weekend. Right now she’s only drinking almost an ounce per feeding but I barely pumped that this morning! What can I do to increase my production. I did not drink as much water yesterday than I normally do. Could that be the reason?

  • I’ve been trying to breastfeed my daughter who is almost 2 months old. but I never have enough time or I’m exhausted, so I changed to formula.

  • Drinking coffee and wine is ok while breastfeeding. I drink a large coffee once a day and you can drink a glass or two of wine. Just drink them right after you’ve breastfed.

  • Hey my baby is 3 weeks I kind of fell back from breastfeeding and pumping. The I was only pumping 2 oz per breast it wasn’t enough, but I really want to breastfeed her. I latch her on my breast every now and then but the past couple days I have like once or twice a day. Because I want my milk to flow again, I want her to get her nutrients from me

  • Thanks for this! I have a 5 day old delivered via c-section and like someone in the comments said…everything was good in the hospital until she came home. After speaking with her pediatrician I found out she was not getting enough when I breastfed. I want to up my milk supply and tried what you said. I substituted the shower with using my heating pad with massages then did the power pump and drank 2 bottle of water and pumped a half an oz! I can’t wait to keep building. I plan to pump and breastfeed

  • Thanks for the helpful video. Just want to remind you though, that the bumper you have in your crib is a SIDS risk. Just looking out from a former NICU nurse of 5 yrs. Best of luck:).

  • Is there anything to help a lazy boob ��. My right produces max 5ml per pump session, even if I power pump. My left produces about 20-50ml (depending on the time of day). I need help with increasing my supply and fixing my lazy boob ��

  • The best thing a baby could have is breast milk because it has antibodies in it and baby can digest it well. Only in severe health things should you use formula. Or if your supply is low and you need to supplement until you get your supply up

  • You’re amazing! This is the first video of yours I’ve watched and you made me cry (happy tears!) I’ve had a challenging journey with nursing and you’ve given me hope & joy! Thank you for making this video. I’m using the spectra S2 now and only pump 4oz max per session I’ve had to supplement for my 3.5 month old and have tried so many formulas. I finally found one that works but I want to exclusively breastfeed him. I’m going to try the baby Buddha and the hands free cups! THANK YOU

  • Ugh I’m going through the same thing. My baby breastfed perfectly fine the first day at the hospital. But he had to be taken to NICU for a week in a half the next day and when they allowed me to breastfeed he totally forgot. He got introduced to the bottle to fast. It broke my heart but I gotta do what’s best for my baby. So pumping it is.

  • Ur vdeo is very helpful mam �� Hey guys i want pump on rent or 2
    nd hand pump if someone is interested plz give me m not able to purchse new one and my baby is not able to latch till birth he did not take my milk but i want to give him hand expressing doesn’t work for me ��

  • I find it interesting they gave the baby formula since you had gestational diabetes, I did too but she just breast fed the entire and time and did well, but mine was diet controlled I don’t know if yours was more serious like having to take insulin maybe that makes a difference ����‍♀️

  • Im going to try your tips, I hope they work! My daughter is 2 and a half weeks and I was set on breastfeeding, but I wasn’t producing enough to keep up with her, so I’m pumping like a mad man to increase my supply so I can breastfeed her like I intended. So far im only making 1 ounce to maybe 1.5 ounces per session. I do have one question if you could answer for me, is one hour of skin to skin enough? Or maybe even less? With me having to feed her every 2 to 3 hours and pumping every 2 to 3 hours (I usually cant pump while she eats cause no one else is home) I dont have a lot of time, so what’s the minimum skin to skin time she and I can have to help increase supply? I love skin to skin time too, I just wish I had more time

  • Omggg I was looking for a.short to the point video on how to increase milk. I just had my son on the 19th of May and my son and I are on this journey together of nursing…. watching the video and hear you say your son’s name is Ezra so is mines!!! ��������

  • Omg why did I watch your video sooner!!!! Very helpful and reassuring to me in my breastfeeding journey with my baby, thank you!!!

  • I didn’t get to do skin to skin because I was possitive to Covid ��
    I really wanted to breastfeed, but because I didn’t see my baby for a few days my milk went away ��

  • Honestly, the most real pumping video I’ve watched. I’m a mom of 3, all breastfed. I’ve always been a working mom so I am very familiar with the pump. However, your tips and recommendations are just awesome. I love the beaker idea and the beaker is super cute. This might be a silly question but how do you prepare the milk cold since it separates? Do you stir it first? I will be exclusively pumping once my youngest is 6 months so that is how I stumbled onto your video bc I need all the suggestions and recommendations. And these recommendations are just great. Thanks for sharing this very personal story.

  • Great info and video… how do you add the milk to the jug? To use for gallons…. reason I ask is because I heard you cant mix cold milk and fresh milk…. is that true? This may help me because I pump 2-3 times a day at work…. i breast feed the rest of the day. Thanks for this video

  • I just had my baby 2 weeks ago.
    I had to get surgery because I still had placenta in my stomach, and was told I have amenia. I’m only producing 60 oz. After 30 mins pumping each boob thanks for the tip I really want to produce more for my baby.
