Breastfeeding & Pumping Support


Chocolate Lactation Smoothie

I struggled with finding a lactation smoothie that both tasted good and helped boost my milk supply. So I (kinda) created my own!

Any amount of milk you pump is normal. I’ve pumped anywhere from less than an ounce to over 5 ounces in one session. Don’t let Tiktok and IG fool you. You don’t need to be pumping 8+ ounces every time. If you’re an oversupplier that’s great! But don’t stress yourself out if you’re only pumping a few ounces each session. #pumping #pumpingmom #liquidgold #breastmilk #breastmilksupply #breastfeeding #pumpingtips #breastfeedingtips #breastfeedingjourney

I doubled my milk supply by doing these three things! 1. Homemade chocolate/banana smoothie with milk boosting ingredients 2. Using a handsfree pump to minimize stress (and wires) to go about my business 3. Pump often, during nursing sessions and mini power pumps in between nursing sessions I did this for almost two days and got a huge boost in my supply! Disclaimer: This is not medical advice, just what worked for me. Please reach out to an IBCLC if you have additional questions, as I am not yet certified. Please don’t attempt to boost your supply if you have enough milk! I have just enough to feed my baby and was looking for a quick boost to start a stash at home for my husband to feed him while I’m out. #breastfeedingisnatural #breastfeedingtips #breastfeedingmoms #breastfeeding #pumpingmom #pumpingtips
