Supply increase after a year


Any tips on increasing supply after 1year. I’d like to build up my freezer stash so he can drink BM well into 2 years especially if I were to discontinue feeding him ....I tried pumping last weekend along with feeding and became completely frustrated since I only got about an ounce I’ve also been taking fenugreek- any suggestions are appreciated

    Oatmeal, chia seeds, Reduce alcohol consumption, milkmaid teas. Those worked for me. Increasing healthy calorie intake as well.

    The best thing you can do to increase supply is nurse and/or pump more often. In the beginning you won't get much since your supply has regulated but if you continue to stimulate the breast with more pumping or nursing then eventually your body will establish more supply to keep up with demand. However, I'd caution against trying to really increase your supply just so you can build a stash. You don't want to end up with mastitis or oversupply. It can also be really exhausting!!
