Q:

My lo is 3 mths and fed on bm + Nusobee soya formula. I wanna eliminate formula by giving express bm. Can electric breast pump help to increase milk supply?



Breast milk supply can be increased with increased stimulation. So yes if you use a breast pump you can use the same to pump more frequently to increase the supply. The primary advantage of an electric pump is that it does not put strain on your hand and for frequent use it is a better option than the manual.

Any specific frequency at which I should pump for stimulating? Is there an ideal milk quantity while pumping?
