Your baby will stop feeding when she is full. to increase milk supply, make sure that your baby is well latched, is sucking well as more is sucking, more will be the milk production. Secondly feed more often, feed from both sides and feed for longer time so that the baby gets richer and fuller milk. 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, chana, hummus, nuts, green papaya, sesame seeds and healthy fats like vegetable oils. Presence of phytoestrogens, vitamins and minerals makes them good lactogenic foods. In addition, spices like, fenugreek seeds, garlic, ginger, fennel, black pepper, basil, anise, caraway and turmeric are also good but these foods should be taken in moderation. Lastly drinking lots of water, milk and milk based drinks will also ensure good milk supply. Finally remain stress free, remain happy and all will be fine. If you have the strong willingness to feed, milk formation will take place Take Care
