Hello everyone,

My 1 mnth old son seems always hungry and wants to be fed every now and then. While feeding for about 5 mins he falls asleep but after sleeping for about few mins he wake up again demanding for more milk. My breast feels soft and empty due to constant feeding. Could my milk supply be low to satisfy my baby's hunger?? Sometimes it becomes too much for me to handle that I end up feeding him formula. Help!!

one month baby needs to be fed atleast every two hours. if milk supply of low then baby's stomach won't be full. so often baby feels hungry and asks for feed. to improve milk supply include lots of garlic, drumsticks, milk. if you are non vegetarian include egg, mutton soup etc.

my baby in 15 days old here also same problem

drink at least 1kg milk in a day....

half in the morning and
half at bed tym.

Thank you Mommas. Will keep that in mind and gonna try them.

Than should I nurse even when my breast feels soft and empty??

but my baby is sleeping when I feed

after 1 minute he wakes up n crying

while feeding..rub his feet or ears to wake him up and to drink more milk..keep disturbing him or keep talking to him while feeding. so dat he will nt go into sleep and will drink stomach full..this has worked out for me..plz u too try and enjoy feeding. .
