Answer: Dear see if baby will not latch properly then breastmilk will go down. So firstly to increase breastmilk feed your baby more frequently because breastmilk is like supply on demand the more baby will feed the more it come. Also spent skin to skin time with your baby that's really important because that will stimulate your hormones and increase breastmilk. There are Super foods they are called for increasing breastmilk - garlic, almonds, oats, cumin seeds and fenugreek seeds. Use them in your food daily, make them a part of your meals. All these are supposed to increase your breastmilk.
