Boob Scoop

Boob Scoop: The number of times a mom empties her breasts each day to maintain milk production has been called her "Magic Number." If a mom is not nursing/pumping enough times in a 24-hour period to meet her Magic Number, her body will decrease milk production. For working mothers, more breastfeeding at night means less pumping sessions needed while mom is at work.
