Breast milk supply depends on sucking and the willingness to breastfeed . The more the sucking, more will be the milk production and more will be the supply. For this, check on the tips - 1. Make sure baby is latched or attached well to your breasts as this will ensure good sucking. 2. Make sure baby is positioned well. Hold baby with your arms forming a C shape and face completely turned towards your chest. You can check with your doctor for correct positioning. 3. Feed more often and for longer time on each side. 4. Drink plenty of water and atleast 2-3 cups of milk in a day. 5. There are many natural and healthy foods that increase milk supply plus they do not cause any harm to babies. These are Carrots, Beet, Dark green veggies like Spinach, Oats, chickpeas, nuts,, sesame seeds, ghee, almonds, cashew, gardencress seeds, edible gum methi seeds and some , spices like, ginger, saunf, black pepper, , aijwain, caraway and turmeric but these foods should be taken in moderation. 6. Do not take any medication unless prescribed by doctor and avoid excess of coffee. 7. Remain happy and relaxed and do not get stressed.
