To download Baby Buddy, visit the relevant app store of your choice: You can increase your milk supply by taking more milk out of your breasts - that could be by giving your baby extra feeds or expressing milk after a feed. This tells your body to make more milk. Don't worry if your breasts feel softer than in the first weeks or you don't leak as much as you did - that doesn't mean you haven't got enough milk, it means your milk supply is in balance with what your baby is drinking. Watch the video to find out how keeping your baby close to you can increase your milk supply: If you are worried, talk to your health visitor or midwife or call a breastfeeding helpline or use 'Baby Around' feature in Baby Buddy app to find out if there are any breastfeeding support groups nearby.
