Thank you for your question about increasing your breastmilk supply

If you do not have any cardiac problems, you could enquire at the Walmart pharmacy about Domperidone (Motilium) or you may also want to consider Fenugreek capsules or a mothers milk tea.

Other strategies that will assist in increasing the flow include; increased frequency of pumping; breast compression during pumping; increasing suck speed and vacuum for short bursts throughout the pumping episode.

Hope this is helpful.
