Check your milk flow. since the baby is depending on your feed, you should take care of your diet for proper lactation and her weight gain. if the baby is unwilling to take milk directly, you can express milk and feed her with a spoon and katori. Few suggestions to increase breast milk are take a balanced diet of cereals (esp dalia, bajra), green leafy vegetables (esp methi, mustard leaves), dals & legumes (masoor. black channa, soybean), fruits, milk products, eggs fish & poultry. Do take almonds, cashew, walnuts, sesame seeds, flaxseeds, dates, raisins, cumin seeds, methi seeds, ajwain, dried ginger, gaund, jaggery etc. You should also take ample fluids in the form of lukewarm water, zeera water, soups, buttermilk, egg nog, milk etc. You may also read a blog for this on our website, link is given I hope this helps.
