You may try Pro-PL powder with milk. it is really helpful in increasing supply of breast milk. other than that boil ajwain with water and have this 3-4 times a day... these method will surely help you.

hi reeta... B an optimistic mom... Don't preoccupy ur mind with negative thoughts... Drink water before u feeding ur baby & also include more fluids in ur diet... D best way to improve d breast milk supply is to keep on feeding baby quiet oftenly... Follow d healthy diet plan.. Include more fruits & vegetables... Some of d breast milk boosting ingredients are : Garlic,barley,fenugreek seeds,carrot,beetroot, tapioca, drum stick leaves soup,peanut,pomegranate juice etc... If u r a non vegetarian, u can include fish & soups n ur diet... Stay happy & enjoy motherhood...

Hi Reeta, the first and foremost way to increase your breast milk supply is to relax yourself and be in a calm frame of mind. Stress, agitation and anxiety lowers the breast milk supply and then the vicious cycle continues. Also it would be advisable if you consult a lactation expert to know whether the baby is latching properly. Though there is no such thing as less breast milk supply scientifically, as nature has devised the breast milk supply according to the needs of the child. But the best thing is to feed him breast milk frequently rather than feeding formula milk. Because when you shift you formula feed your body is getting signals that there is no demand of breast milk and hence the supply decreases.
