Increasing Milk Supply

Many women who have low milk supply or who are "just enoughers" have a goal of increasing milk supply. This can be really stressful, but there are lot of different things that you can try - fenugreek, oatmeal, power pumping, and drinking more water are just a few.

It's a good idea to research all the options for increasing milk supply. Everyone is different, and what works for someone else might not work for you. (Personally, fenugreek and oatmeal worked great for me; drinking water didn't really do anything. Other women have had the opposite experience.) If something's not working after a week or two, switch things up and try something new.
