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. U can increase the breast milk by changing your daily meal plan . Start ur day with almond and a glass of milk.

Don't forget to end up ur food with fennel seed. In the evening prefer taking dairy products like paneer ,milk n all. Give baby only breastfeed. Keeps on baby nursing after a regular time.  Feed baby exclusively on bm. Avoid giving fm. Avoid Pacifier and bottle. Don't take much stress.  There is an ayurvedic powder named sitavari.

Question: My baby is 23 days old. Still I am unable to breastfeed her.,she is on formula feed, not ready to suck nipples. Feeling very sad n helpless😞
Answer: Hello dear, Women are advised to keep on breastfeeding, as it will actually help to sucking.  Gently rub your nipple on your baby's lips to encourage him to open WIDE, you must get as much of the nipple in the mouth as you can, if baby don't open mouth, inserting your finger in the corner of the baby mouth to open it. this process will help your baby to suck and try to feed when baby more hungry. Take care urself...
