Answer: Hello Dear Mom So many feeding mothers are facing low breast milk supply....You are concerned about your little one’s health and growth, and want to do nothing less than the best. One of the most important questions that feeding moms have is what to eat during the feeding months that will ensure a good supply of milk.The feeding phase is one when a mother requires a lot of attention with regards to her food and health. Whatever you eat during this period is crucial to your post-delivery recovery. It will also directly affect the amount of milk that is produced.One of the best ways to increase milk supply is to keep on nursing your little one. Making milk from your baby is better than any other method to make milk in your body. The stimulations of the nerves during breastfeeding helps produce more milk in the breasts. The emptying of the milk signals your body to increase the milk production. If you feel your milk supply stills needs an improvement, then you should consider adding foods that promote milk production.There are certain foods that increase breast milk and enhance lactation. Breast milk contains all the prime nutrients required for an overall growth and brain development of a newborn baby...some are thr best foods to increase breast milk production * Oatmeal is loaded with energy.It contains fiber and is good for your digestion.Have a bowl of oat meal for breakfast...you can try having oat cookies instead. * Garlic is considered the best food to increase breast milk, as it is well-known for boosting lactation in nursing mothers.Scientificall has chemical compounds which help in lactation. * Spinach and beet leaves contain iron, calcium and folic acid.Mix them with dough and make paratha or chapattis for a meal.Remember to eat spinach in moderation as too much could cause diarrhea in your baby.
