mother's body will produce enough milk for the baby , more the baby sucks milk production is more ...try frequent feeds for your baby may be every half an hour , it's the demand and supply so your body will automatically produce more milk . still you can consult your doc and have some medicines ....but do try avoiding formula milk. Also you can take rava , methi kanji or ganji evryday twice morning and evening . this will help in more production of milk .

Eat food which you used to eat before marriage(your mummy's food) .. Apart from this... eat healthy food.. Have liquid daal in lunch and dinner along with sabjis. Drink lots of water.. Have dry fruits.. Don't drink lots of milk.. As it will lead to gas problem in you and baby.. 2 glasses of milk will be sufficient.. Lastly.. BF baby.. The more you BF.. More milk will come.. Esp. in the night.

hii Kalpana !! I am a mother of twins and I had the same problem . I tried all home remedies but nothing was as impactful and fruitful . so doctor suggested sataverex granules it's a zandu product , ayurvedic and its non harmful or had any side effects . plus from the second or third day u will see difference in milk quantity . milk is very essential so have this powder mixed with warm milk twice or thrice a day . guaranteed results .

I understand it's very hard. Though the more you feed your baby the more the milk gets secreted.. just relax and also consult your doc for formula if required ..also you cannot eat more than your tummy demands there could also be reasons behind.

Try eating one cup of oatmeal everyday. Also garlic,cumin,methi are good for increasing milk supply. Drink 2 glasses of milk in the morning and in the evening. If you are a non vegetarian, kheema and goat leg soup are very beneficial. Hope this helps !

Hi kalpana.. my son is 49 days old. even i faced the same problem. even after feeding for long, he never used to sleep for long and cry most of the time. that does not mean your milk supply is less. sometimes baby dont drink full stomach n fall asleep. then i tried to express milk n gave him through bottle. now he sleeps well for 2hours. now i give him my feed for 20-30 mins n then feed the expressed milk. this way he is latching also and got the habit of bottle also. life has become much easier though pumping milk and sterilizing bottles is extra work. but trust me its worth it.

it will help to take more liquid to increase BM. also take shatavari kalp twice daily with milk. it is proven to immensely help with lactation. do not worry too much as it impacts negatively on your BM supply. keep feeding as long as your baby takes it.

Don't go by general opinion, people will pass a lot of comments but the final word is that of the doctor. If the doctor says the baby weight is less, then follow his advice. My doctor advised me to top BM with FM n that has helped me.

If your baby's weight is ok as per the doctor, then don't worry about it. Also, don't stress about your milk so much, the more you stress, the more it reduces. Ensure you have sufficient liquids in your diet and have good quantity of water, drink water before you start feeding and that will help you stay hydrated. Add makhane to increase BM.
