Answer: Hi dear if your baby is 3 months old now and the birth weight was 2.6 kgs and now weighs 5 kg I think it is absolutely fine there is nothing to be worried about the weight of the baby and I have also heard that moringa leaves are good in increasing breast milk but the main thing which will help you to increase the supply is watching your baby directly please give a lot of skin to skin to the baby so that the baby latches directly apart from that you can try the following ; 1. Satvarex powder twice with milk 2. Methi in any form- methi sabzi, methi seeds with water, kasuri methi, methi laddoo, methi pills 3. Lots of garlic in food and desi ghee 4. Lots of water. Min 1 glass before & after every bf 5. Daliya with milk or oats once atleast 6. Ajwain 7. Zeera and jaggery.. grind together and hv spoonful with milk twice a day 8. Masoor daal 9. Papaya and keep a watch on the baby's weight the baby should double the birth weight at 6 months .. Hope this helps!
