What is Power Pumping?

Power pumping mimics cluster feeding of your baby during a growth spurt. During these times your baby’s more frequent and longer sucking triggers an increased release of prolactin from the pituitary gland to -MAKE MORE MILK- Power pumping works by signalling the body to make more milk, more quickly.

Power pumping schedule:

Pick one hour each day or night (such as 8am every morning)

👉Pump 20 minutes

💤Rest 10 minutes

👉Pump 10 minutes

💤Rest for 10 minutes

👉Pump 10 minutes


Some moms will see a difference in 3 consecutive days, while others may need to power pump for up to 7 consecutive days. Don't be discouraged if it takes a little longer.


Hour of Power

Turn this power pumping time into an hour for yourself. Sit back and watch some Netflix, read that book you haven't had time for or do some online shopping. And make sure you have snacks and water nearby 😀
