Pumping alot will help increase your milk supply. Either breastfeed or pump every two hours the entire day(including waking up in the night every two hours.) With you either feeding or pumping your body will think that it needs to be making lots of milk and will start to mass produce. Be sure to drink lots of water and also you can try drinking the mother's milk tea. I am not sure if it helps or not but give it a try.

The best way to increase milk supply is by nursing your baby frequently and without restrictions. If you are wondering how to increase breast milk supply or you are concerned that you are not producing enough - it's important to breastfeed more often... even every hour or more! While you are building up your milk supply it's okay to give your baby formula - the most important thing is that you are feeding your baby and taking good care of him/her! Galactagogues are medications or substances that can induce or enhance breast milk production. The most commonly used herbal galactagogues are fenugreek and blessed thistle Others include milk thistle, alfalfa, anise, astragalus root, burdock, nettle, fennel, and vervain. Medications that can increase breastmilk supply are also available by prescription.

Attach your baby at every opportunity. The best and most efficient way to increase milk supply is to have a baby suckle. Comp feed as necessary, reducing the bottle as your supply increases. Drink lots of water. Don't drink anything that dehydrates you eg soft drinks.

Contact a lactation consultant. babies stimulate the breast better than a pump so try latching baby on. If you're having trouble don't feel discouraged, it can take time. Until you see a lactation consultant and get your supply up start pumping ever 2-3 hours even at night. It will be hard work but it will be worth it

Also a suggestion to contact the Australian Breastfeeding Assoc. they are fantastic. They have a Free Help line that you can phone and someone would be able to give you advice and it is nice to speak to someone personally about it. Other comments are right though the more you feed/express more milk you body will produce. Hang in there I know from experience how hard it is.

First of all, ((hugs)) to you. My youngest son had Open heart Surgery back in Sept/06. Breastmilk is always the optimum form of feeding a baby.....especially a baby with a CHD/illness. No matter your sons age, Breastmilk will benefit him, whether 7 weeks, 7months or 1 year. Breastmilk has known capabilities for increasing immune strength at any age......now, with our CHD babies, infections can be fatal, so ANYTHING that can boost his immune system is worth giving it ALL you've got :) That being said, YES it is totally possible to re-lactate and nurse again. Most likely, you still have *some* milk left to start out with. You should contact your local La Leche League for support. They have tons of info on re-lactating....heck, if an adoptive Mom can do, all the more that you can too. Honestly, it won't be easy....it will take time and patience as well as lots of time spent relaxing and nursing....kinda like the newborn stage again. Same rules apply as in the beginning, you need to have LOTS of direct nursing to start stimulating your breasts to produce. Pumping in between will also help, but nothing is as effective as a REAL baby. Allow your son to pacify himself at the breast if he so chooses. If he seems reluctant to nurse without getting something more out of you (this will change as time goes on and your supply builds back up), look into a Supplemental Nursing System. Its a small sack that hangs around your neck and it attached to a tube that directs formula/pumped milk to your sons mouth as you nurse him. He gets milk AND your breasts get nursed. There are also some herbs that have been fund to help with production...Domperidone and Fenugreek. Surf the net, you'll find resources everywhere. Please feel free to send me an e-mail as I would be more then happy to help you out. ETA: I too am local to Vancouver. We see Dr. Duncan at Childrens Hospital. Exclusive pumping *might* work.....how come you couldn't just breastfeed on demand? Maybe you could nurse/pump and bottlefeed?
