after ten days of my second delivery i was in stress that i couldn't take care of my first baby. that stress reduced my breast milk secretion. now my second baby s 3. 6 months old. as per doctor's advice i started bottle feeding. breast milk slowly reduced. but still i have a guilt feel that i didn't think about my 2nd baby. my both deliveries were surgery. i wish to give breastfeeding. will the milk secretion increase in this stage also? suggestions please?

Isha i can understand ur depression.. but it is true that u could start bottle feeding after 6months of his age... As per my opinion try to put some bitter taste n ur nipple.. if he will start cry,try to convince him n other way..

@Shruthi hi , you may start breast feeding you baby again and the suckling may stimulate the oxytocin release and may be you may start producing breast milk again try this it may help you .

@Pranati hi Breast feeding can be continued till 2 years as per the standard guidelines and once you decide to stop all you need to do is stop feeding and offer some semisolid feed instead to satisfy hunger and in case baby is too clingy or takes feeds at bedtime only than you try the trick to sleep a couple of days separate from your baby , let the baby sleep with father and soon baby shall forget to take breast feed.

Its very informative for me. I have shortage of BM since CSec delivery so doc started FM. My baby is 4 mnths old, and now she's having limited BM and FM, reluctant to bottle feed. May be not liking FM. Pls suggest how to increase her milkfeed(BM & FM) as iam having less BM. suggest the best Formula milk. I am tensed about her diet as she has reduced the consumption of milk.
