less milk secretion
| Feb 05, 2017
first of all stop worrying and stressing out these are the main reasons of less milk supply. bring positive feeling in your self. chk with your pediatric and start formula milk give few ounces of formula to baby and them try giving breast milk. more your back suck there is more milk production if you don't latch your baby your body thinks that there is no need of producing milk and it eventually stops. I'm telling this on my personal experience . my baby was 12 weeks premature he couldn't suck so I used to pump out for him he didn't breast feed for 4 months my milk production stopped my lactation consultant told me to allow him to suck after feeding him. now he is 11 months n on breast feeding. so don't worry try having methi in ur diet it helps in milk production

Pratibha first stop getting depressed by this ur increasing ur stress levels n it's affecting milk production. have a rich calcium protein diet and keep eating at regular intervals have lots of fluid intake. suji, methi leaves ,coconut helps in milk production so have it in ur diet everyday. As I said in my previous comment first feed ur baby formula milk get his tummy full n the latch baby on ur breast. if you latch baby before his full tummy due to absence of BM he will cry. still baby refuses to latch on breast get a hand pump and start pumping every 2 hours n store milk. even if milk doesn't come keep pumping for 15-20 mins. it works as stimulus and make ur body produce milk. pls don't give up look at tht sweet baby face n start. hope this helps
