Tips to breastfeed your baby longer

The best gift any mother can give her newborn is the gift of love expressed through her milk! As a new mommy you want to give your baby the best right from the day one. Your doctor also advises you for exclusive breastfeeding for 6 months before you start another semi-solid foods along with breastfeed. However, there are times when a mom feels anxious about her milk flow not being sufficient, or if the baby is not latching properly to take in the milk. Hence in that anxiety you may feel that switching over to the formula milk is a better option. But before you do that, think again, especially about the fact that nothing else can replace a mother’s feed for the child. As we celebrate World breastfeeding Week today, here are some things you must know about your breast milk and its importance for your child.

My baby is 3months old and weighs 4. 9kg. So can you confirm per day how much feed to be given. He is in combination of breast milk and formula. Lactogen1 we r using upto now.

hi Rashmi. u didn't mention how old is ur baby. though you can take tab leptaden 2tabs thrice a day for increasing breast milk . also take plenty of water per day . I. e. around 10-12 glasses per day. have a glass of water every tym before you feed the baby. take milk, Nd milk products,arabi, jorat, methi in your diet. soak 1tsp methi seeds in a cup of water at night. boil it in morng. and strain and drink the waTer three times a day. fenugreek seeds I. e. methi seeds increase milk production. put the baby again and again to breast feed. he/she will get used to it aftr some tym. if not. then express breast milk out and feed with dropper or spoon. but do give breast milk for 6 months at list.
