My SIL is just 5 month old. She isnt able to breastfeed due to various problems. If she keeps expressing the milk, then will the milk supply reduce with time period or will she be able to feed the child till approx 1 year?

She can consult a lactation consultant

No dear. The more your sil express the more milk will flow. Ask her not to stop feeding her baby, its the best bond between a mother & baby.

Milk supply will reduce if it's not been suckled and only expressed. Ask her to try to feed at maximum times. In other cases, can Consult doctor for a good formula milk that's similar to bm.
