Pumping after breastfeeding no milk

It's normal for a woman's breast milk production to vary throughout the day and during different stages of breastfeeding. 

It's also possible for a woman's milk supply to decrease temporarily if she is not breastfeeding or pumping as frequently as she was before. 

If you are pumping after breastfeeding and not getting much milk, it could be that your body has adjusted to the reduced demand for milk and is producing less.

If you are concerned about your milk supply, there are a few things you can try to increase it:

  1. Breastfeed or pump frequently: The more often you stimulate your breasts to produce milk, the more milk your body will make. Try to breastfeed or pump at least 8-12 times per day.

  2. Breastfeed or pump for longer periods of time: Your body produces more milk when it receives a stronger signal to do so. Try breastfeeding or pumping for longer periods of time, or using a double pumping system to stimulate both breasts at once.

  3. Make sure you are using the correct flange size: If the flange (the part of the breast pump that fits over your nipple) is too small, it can be painful and may not effectively remove milk from your breasts. Make sure you are using the correct size flange for your breast size.

  4. Eat a healthy, well-balanced diet: A healthy diet can help support your milk production. Make sure you are getting enough calories and protein, and drink plenty of fluids.

  5. Relax: Stress and anxiety can affect your milk supply. Try to relax and take breaks when you can.

It's also a good idea to talk to your healthcare provider or a lactation consultant if you have concerns about your milk supply. 

They can provide you with more specific advice and support.
