Milk for my babies

I was a little worried I won't be able to produce enough breastmilk for both of them. Especially now that I am still not able to feed them directly (they're wire-fed). Because of this, I made it a must to pump every 2 hours using my Medela freestyle. Below picture, hasil setelah pada hari ke 5. and those are only from one day. I have flooded the hospital's fridge with my milk toooooo LOL.

No artificial flavour, as in no drygs or supplement to help increase my milk production this time around.

The trick?
-plenty of warm water.
-massage the breast to stimulate milk.
-pump, pump, pump frequently.

The result?
-you are able to supply plenty of milk to help your prem babies put on weight. No direct feeding doesn't mean no milk!!!

Hang in there ok - Medela Freestyle is a great pump.

You're doing all the right things to ensure a good supply of milk. Remember to rest as much as you can.

Thinking of you - HUGS!!!
