Hi Nikita please don't get disheartened.. it's normal .. sometimes mother's may produce less milk.. but by some changes in your diet .. you can change it... you must have a balanced and nutritious diet with green leafy Vegetables fruits and nuts.. you can take cheese and milk. If you can also have eggs and fish. Put jeera and ajwaaein in your diet.. jeera increases milk production.. as milk production is related to hormones you must remain tension free and stress free and happy to boost your metabolism. And you must also take advice of your gynae in this regard.

Helo Nikita there is nothing like not producing milk dear. Dont get stressed. Eat a healthy diet. Include lot of greeny vegetables, fruits, dry fruits on your diet. Make sure you drink a big glass of water before feeding as well as after feeding. It helps in proper flow of milk and makes the process ease. Always make sure you keep your body hydrated. You can also have milk and drumstick leaves soup which is a good source of iron and your baby will receive the nutrients what you are eating. Empty your breasts jn every feed. Be patient. Allow baby to suck on your breasts. The more the baby suck on the breasts the more milk the breasts will produce. Thats simple like when baby sucks its like massage for breasts which helps in secretion of milk. Whenever baby is demanding milk you have to give dont have timing feeding like if baby cries in half an hour of feeding and again cries for milk again you have to offer dont think you offered just half an hour back. Even baby cries within 10mins also you have to give. Dont worry this wont last long. So be patient. I too faced the same. I had garlic sauted and had it with rice. Garlic helps in milk secretion. Then you can make rice porridge by adding small onions, garlic, fenugreek, grated coconut cook for three to four whistles have this porridge in the morning. This one helped for me like anything else. Also you can have nonveg in your diet. As you are a breastfeeding mother its compulsory for you to eat atleast an egg a day for calcium. Fenugreek helps really.
