Question: Hi moms my daughter is 2 months. My breast milk is not sufficient to her wt can I do how to increase my milk plz help me
Answer: Hello dear. These are best foods to increase breast milk production & are great in terms of bringing you back to health, as well as aid in milk production.
1.) Porridge milk twice a day
2.) veges soup 2 bowls a day
3.) daal soup thrice a day
4.) Oatmeal: Oats are easy to prepare as a meal
5.) Fennel Seeds
6.) Fenugreek Seeds
7.) Unripe Papayas
8.) Spinach And Beet Leaves
10.) Black Sesame Seeds
Some simple methods to add fenugreek seeds in your daily meals are:
Fenugreek tea: Simply soak some fenugreek seeds in water overnight. In the morning you can boil them for about 5 minutes in water and strain the seeds. What's left is fenugreek tea which you can sip on daily till you feel the milk supply has increased as per expectation
Capsules: You can also try buying fenugreek capsules which are easily available at medical stores. Consuming one capsule 2-3 times a day will do the trick
Eat whole fenugreek seeds for lactation:Take some fenugreek seeds, roughly half a teaspoon and swallow them with a glass of water. They may not taste pleasant, but they can help boost the breastmilk supply. Additionally, you may also gulp down some soaked methi seeds for boosting lactation
Powdered form: You can grind fenugreek seeds and store them in advance. Eat half a teaspoon with your meals in your curries and dals.
Hope it helps.
