Hi... My son is 2 months old and I don't have proper latching with my son due to my short nipples and low milk supply. Now I feeding him with formula feed. I am using lactare tablets (3 in a day). How can I improve my milk production, please help... Does using breastpump increases my milk supply as my kid is not latching. Please suggest.

i agree with Hema n Kavita comments... i had similar issues when my baby was born.. i used nipple sheilds for a week after he was born to bring my nipples into shape.. my baby latched well with help of nipple sheilds.. however i discontinued after a week as sheilds are knwn to decrease milk supply.. I have used lactare tablets, lactonjc granules and methi seeds all of them.. i think what helped me most was methi seeds.. soak them and eat them when they are soft.. please let us knw how did things go wth you!

hi. since you need to feed breast milk and latching is poor, then best way is to express and then feed your son. Regular milk expressing will increase supply and also avoid breast related issues like engorgement etc. there are lots of foods that can help increase milk flow. There is an entire blog on this - Nutrition tips for breastfeeding moms. Also read - How to safely store breast milk for your baby
