My LO is almost 5 weeks & is BF. I'd like to express my milk so that I have 3-4 bottles worth so that my mum can look after him whilst I'm at a wedding on NYE. I have tried expressing & can't seem to get more than about 1.5oz but I need about 4oz per feed. Iv read that fenugreek increases milk supply, would this help me to express more milk? My LO seems happy with the milk directly so I don't necessarily have a low milk supply. Would fenugreek do any harm or is it worth trying?
I have a manual & electric breast pump & I get about the same amount from both.
