I breast feed my two month old full time and express from each breast in the morning for use if I'm out and about in the daytime. Should I be expressing in the evening as well to get my milk supply up for 3 month growth spurt ?

Your baby will do a perfectly good job of demanding more when she / he goes through a growth spurt - no need to express. That's the amazing thing about BF (when it works - ie in the majority of cases) - it just adjusts to suit your exact baby. Trust your body!

By the way, you might get more answers by posting in the "Breast and bottle feeding" section, including ones from trained BF counsellors / other trained experts. smile
