Answer: lloHello dear, Here are some foods and remedies ,which can help to increase breast milk supply. Masur Dal... This is most important. Take everyday one glass masur dal with ghee. Oatmeal...Cinnamon or honey..... Spinach... Garlic. ...Brewer's yeast...Fenugreek. ...Apricots... 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. Hope it helped.... Take care urself....
Answer: Hello dear, you need to change your formula Milk. If you want to choose formula milk,, the best is go for Nan Pro. It has it's share of benefits. It will not let your child feel constipated, and will also gove your baby all the essential nutrients required for the proper growth. Remember one thing your baby is too young and so is the intestine which will digest mother's feed or formula feed as it's light in nature. Take care ur little one....

Answer: Hey Dear,  I also had the same issue when my baby was born. Few tips which is used, tried and tested by me hope it will help.  Try to offer ur baby more breast milk even if u hv low supply the more baby latch the more milk will produce so offer ur baby both the sides like 10 mins from left then another 10mins from right side. Doing this the milk glands will open and start produce milk. Other then this u can try zeera and ajwain water this will also help to make more milk.

Include more milk products in ur diet like milk porridge (daliya) works very effectively and it's very very healthy for u too.

Question: My baby has passed green colour stool... It was dark green... Is there any problems? He is on formula milk
Answer: There are majorly 3 reasons for baby to pass green stool. First, imbalance in foremilk and hindmilk. When baby takes only foremilk he is likely to pass green stool. For this feed baby for minimum of 20mins each breast. This way he ll get hindmilk. Second, When baby has any bacterial or viral infection like cold and cough. Apply nutmeg paste on baby's chest feet and palms daily at night. And you can also use mustard garlic ajwain oil to massage his body. Third, It could be due to stomach infection. In this case get stool test done.
