It's all about the supply and demand theory. The more the breast milk is being emptied, your breasts will respond by making even more milk. Emptying your breast milk can be done through directly latching the baby on or through pumping out the milk. Increasing your milk supply may take many days to happen but this will definitely happen if you are consistent in telling your breast and brain that you need more milk. Every one will have enough milk for the baby; this is the nature of life. If you keep saying that you just do not have enough milk, it's probably you are not trying hard enough.

I frequently get phone calls from sleep deprived parents asking for my help, explaining the routine they are currently using and what they would like to achieve with the new routine and then they add....
