What is alternate breast massage?

Women's Health Info - Alternate Breast Massage

Alternate breast massage will not only increase your breast milk supply, but it will also produce milk that is fattier and higher in calories. You do alternate breast massage almost the exact way you do your monthly breast self-exam. While breastfeeding (after your baby has stopped sucking vigorously) or pumping, take two fingers and starting at your armpit and going around your breast, gently massage in a circular motion.
