Answer: Here is a simple homemade powder for increasing milk supply in lactating mothers. Dry roast equal quantities of cumin and fennel seeds till they turn aromatic. Cool them and grind to powder. Mix ½ tsp powder in ½ tsp warm ghee and consume 30 minutes before food 2 to 3 times a day. Desi ghee works best. This can be consumed for 2 weeks, followed by a break for 4 to 5 days and then repeat the cycle. This also helps to reduce colic in breastfed babies. A small portion of ajwain/ carom seeds can also be included.

Answer: Dear breastmilk comes when baby latch it's a hormonal thing. So when baby latch from breast your hormones get stimulation and breast milk come. So baby above 2 months so it's time to latch baby directly from breast otherwise your milk will start drying up.. so if baby get fussy then dont worry just feed baby directly from breast. At first baby will cry alot and will also stop drinking but trying regularly will make baby latch on breast..
Question: Hello😊 is it necessary to pump out the milk if baby don't take one side breastmilk.... Actually sometimes he does want to take breastmilk of my left side..
Answer: You should express the milk out if baby doesn't feed in 3-4hours. And expressing helps to keep the milk supply up on the ignored breast.
But, start every feed from the ignored breast every time since baby needs the amount of milk from both breasts around 4th month
