Answer:
I hope you are doing well. You will have to guide your child so that she latches on to it properly, Sit in a comfortable position, rest her on your lap, then place one of your breasts in her mouth and slightly press it from the top so that she can latch on to it and suck the milk.No distractions and gadgets while you are breastfeeding her. Before you feed her you could press the nipple slightly to know whether there is enough milk or no. Also, add these foods to your diet. -Whole grains -Garlic -Green leafy veggies -Ginger -Fenugreek seeds or methi -Nuts and seeds -Oats -Barley -Fennel seeds (Saunf) -Cumin seeds -Star anise seeds (badiyan ka phool) -Sesame seeds -Turmeric -Drumsticks -Carrots -Black sesame seeds -Salmon fish -Sweet potato -basil or tulsi
