Question: hi i m having 66 days old baby.my milk supply is very low please help me to increase my milk supply please.
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.

• Seasonal fruits: rich in antioxidants, vitamins, minerals and energy.
• Eggs: rich in protein, vitamin D and calcium.
• Whole grains: oatmeal, brown rice, barley are rich in proteins, vitamins, Iron, minerals and energy.
• Low fat dairy products: milk and yogurt are rich in vitamun B,vitamin D and calcium.
• Lean meats:Fish and chicken are rich in vital nutrients. some try to avoid this upto a few months. You can take a call on when to eat this after delivery.
• Garlic: Strengthens immune system and boosts lactation. It also has anti microbial and anti oxidant properties.
• Carrots: rich in potassium , carbohydrates, beta carotene and antioxidants.
• Legumes: rich in protein and iron. Peas, beans, lentils and kidney beans are some of them.
• Dairy foods, such as milk, cheese and yoghurt – these contain calcium and are a source of protein.

Question: Hi my baby is 3months 7 days old now my Breastmilk supply is low I'm very tensed can any one plz tell me how to increase
Answer: Hello, I swallow 1/2 tsp of fenugreek (methi) seeds after dinner or breakfast with water. You can also boil 1 tsp of fenugreek seeds in a cup of milk, then strain the seeds and add sugar or honey then consume warm or cool as u prefer. Also there are milk inducing medications available in the market, u can refer to your obs for specific one. This is the one I know, my bhabi was using it, Lactonic Granules [is one of the best quality lactation supplement available in India. Lactonic is a natural galactagogue indicated for the mothers with insufficient milk secretion. Its powerful action helps to enhance the breast milk production without any side effects.]
But after saying all this usually there is no problem in milk supply, it is just us mothers over worrying as usual 😂 also milk is like demand and supply, the more you feed your baby the body will get a signal to produce more. if your baby is gaining weight & sleeping well then probably he is gettin enough milk. Also your baby may be going through a growth spurt, where they feed more frequently. Common times for growth spurts are during the first few days at home and around 7-10 days, 2-3 weeks, 4-6 weeks, 3 months, 4 months, 6 months and 9 months (more or less). Babies don’t read calendars, however, so your baby may do things differently.
In general; drinking lots of water, eating at regular intervals and not being hungry for long, having adequate amount of sleep, being relaxed and not stressing too much, all help in maintaining milk supply.
Please don't stop breatfeeding and start giving formula milk thinking you have low milk, try your best to cont. Breastmilk it is the best thing you can give your baby.
Hope this helped.
