Add in an extra pumping session

You have the most milk in the morning, so if you can pump then, you will probably get the most output, but anytime is fine – just do what works best for you and your baby. (For me it was 10:00pm!) The important thing is to try to be consistent. You won’t get very much milk the first few times you pump, because the pump isn’t as efficient as your baby and because your body isn’t used to having this extra feeding time. But do it consistently and your body will adjust.
