4 Possible Causes of Low Breastmilk Supply

4 Possible Causes of Low Breastmilk Supply

1. NOT PUMPING OFTEN ENOUGH

As your baby gets older, you can begin to cut down on pumps but you have to be careful not to do that too soon. Also, if you like free, wait until you see what I’m about to share with you! Did you know you could qualify for a FREE breast pump? Aeroflow is a company that works with your insurance to determine whether or not you’re eligible for a free breast pump.

2. NOT EATING ENOUGH

A big concern for many pumping mommas is about losing that baby weight after giving birth. Did you know pumping/ breastfeeding is said to help get your uterus back to its original size quicker and help you lose weight? That means your body is naturally working on getting back to its pre-baby self. When your breast pump you need to make sure you’re eating enough to be able to produce enough milk. 

3. WEARING THE WRONG BRA

Bras with under-wiring, or other firm structures, can contribute to blocked ducts and even mastitis so are best avoided in the early months.

4. NOT USING THE RIGHT SIZE FLANGE

Breast shields, also known as flanges, are plastic funnel-shaped pieces that are placed on your breast. This is the only breast pump part that actually touches your skin. Their purpose is to begin the process of collecting your breast milk. Think of them as a funnel that leads to your milk storage container. You place them on your breast and center them with your nipple. Some come with a connector attached and some you have to attach to a connector, which I will get into below.
