Answer: Hi Dear! First of all congrats! Yes it does take some time after C section to get the milk but the due to flat nipples are inverted nipples if the baby is unable to latch then please start using nipple Shield to feed the baby so that the baby is well fed and only on breast milk and the main doesn't get wasted entirely because you cannot hold the milk with a spoon when the letdown is heavy spoon and everything doesn't work so you need to feed the baby with nipple shield for the for the time being and with nipple Shield also you can hold it in a bottle and you can give it to baby later with spoon but please do not start giving bottle to the baby there will be a lot of nipple confusion and later on baby won't accept direct / at all baby will be dependent on bottle so it is better to feed the baby with nipple Shield and try to wean it later.. Hope this helps!

Question: My baby girl is 38 days old and she is still not taking breastfeed. She cries alot if I force her. So I am using breast pump. I had flat nipples and now my nipples ar getting hard. Also breast milk is low in volume. I am facing a hard and stressful time.
Answer: Hello dear It is very difficult for a newborn baby to latch flat and small nipples. But there should not be any problem with breastfeeding. Most newborns can latch on to flat nipples without much of a problem. And, as long as your baby can latch on to your breast properly, he or she will be able to draw your nipples out. There are lots of techniques that are useful in dealing with flat nipples. These include: 1. Using a pump to draw out the nipple before offering it to the baby. 2. Stimulating your nipple with a cold compress to make the nipple protrude. 3. Pulling back on the areola before you latch the baby on. 4. Finding a nursing position that allows you to support your breast and the baby’s head while working on the correct latch. Galact granules is ayurvedic powder. Have this twice a day with milk.(2 teaspoons in a cup of milk). Consult your Gynocologist she may give some tablets for a couple of days to initiate lactation. In first few days very little amount of milk is enough for your baby so don't worry momma !! Latch him whenever he wants the more he sucks the more is the milk production.

Answer: Hello dear, though formula milk is not recommended for a 1month old baby. But as you are saying your milk amount is low & couldn't meet the need of your baby you can use formula milk. You can also try to increase the amount of milk naturally. Feed your baby frequently. Eat a spoonful of methi and sauf alternate day. It can help to increase milk production.
