Does my age affect my milk production?

Re: Does my age affect my milk production?

The Bump Expert

There isn't any indication that older mamas make less (or lower quality) milk. Your milk is custom-made for your baby, and your milk volume is determined, for the most part, by baby's demand (how much he eats). So go ahead and breastfeed without fear…at any age. But if you are having difficulties, be sure to get experienced, hands-on lactation help.
