    As the title says, what's the best way to increase my milk supply? I'm worried it's slumped lately. Thanks in advance.xx

    If you are exclusively bf it's likely that your supply has just adjusted to your babies needs rather than slumped so you don't feel so engorged, there is still enough for baby though. If you are worried you can try the following
    1. Eat well and drink plenty of fluids
    2. Take fenugreek
    3. Eat oats
    4. Express after each feed
    Also, the more baby feeds the more milk you will make. Spend a day or 2 snuggled up with lo having lots of skin to skin and let him suckle as much as he wants.

    Hope it works. It's so hard to be confident that they are getting enough isn't it? Even after nearly months of bf I still occasionally doubt my supply.
