Answer:
To increase your milk production - Try and eat a balanced diet composed of cereals (dalia, bajra, ragi), Dals (especially masoor), beans & legumes, milk, paneer, cheese, fruits, vegetables, nuts (walnuts, almonds), seeds (til, flaxseeds), dried fruits etc. For more details you may read the blog on our website - https://www.parentune.com/parent-blog/-8-nutrition-tips-for-breastfeeding-mothers/539 Also, dont get very anxious about it....you continue to put your baby to breast to keep the reflex going But yes, if the baby"s demands are not being met by breast milk, it is absolutely fine to supplement with formula.
