Building Up A Supply

I’ve been quite relaxed about expressing my breast milk. But now P2 is 16 weeks old I know that the weaning stage is right around the corner.

My OH and I have agreed to wait until she’s at least 6 months before she starts on baby rice. Even though I weaned P1 at 4months.

I read on the back of the baby rice packet that you use one spoon of rice to ten spoons of milk. Milk, oh yes… my milk! I completely forgot. Breast feeding for this long is such a new experience.

I need to get a good supply of expressed breast milk ready for weaning, and also for our wedding! So I’ve set my phone reminders to 8am and 8pm.

This mornings session didn’t go too well, I used to pump about 4oz in total, I had a one off of 6oz once. But now, well I got just under 2oz and that was from both boobs!!!

I don’t know if it’s the pump I’m using?! Or that I just don’t have much milk anymore. I’m scared! 2oz won’t be enough to keep her going through her weaning!!!!!!

Has anyone got any advice for expressing? Should I change my pump? Express a different time? HELP!
