Hello Dr. I breastfeed my baby bt he is nt gaining weight though I m following d diet given by Baby chakra...;; N thru bf he is unable to satisfy his hunger plz help

@pooja Verma .... you can surely feed your second baby . But you need to start working on Flattened nipples now.
Everyday stimulate the nipple by slowly press out and gently press the areola. This will help the nipple to protrude out. Yet if the problem arises post delivery you can use nipple shield that will help the baby to latch on. Incase if any other issues you can always get in touch with me

Geethanjali Geetha ... an infant should gain 500 gm to 1 kg every month. If not then you need to see a lactation expert.
Even if your baby doesn’t feed at all ... keep trying ... expressing milk is a good option. Lots of breast pumps are available in market. Check on amazon . Electric pump is advisable than manual . Homeopathic medicines work best to increase milk supply.

Nisha Sharma . You can definitely BF your baby. The hormones prolactin and oxytocin which are needed for breastmilk are not connected to the uterus. So you can surely BF

Can I excercise during Breastfeeding? Which homeopathic medcine I can take to increase my supply?

Kusum Thakur ... every baby s heat tolerance is different. Pls see to it that you sit In a well ventilated area or cooler place while BF

Hl.. i was unable to feed my frst baby.. he was 28 weeks born.. due to his critical conditions n my breast milk was vry low.. dis time i m 32 weeks pregnant and worried again. What should i do to feed new born properly..

Ok thanks doctor yatri more question that my baby's urine is lil smelly... What should I do..

Should I take medicine for hormones to increase Milk because I dont think there is any milk

@Nidhi ... BF can be v painful with abscess . When the milk duct is blocked and bacteria infection seeps in abscess develop.
Try manually expressing milk esp from the painful side. More you will empty the breast better relief.
For pain apply cold cabbage leaves on breast after BF . Alternate with warm compression .
Homeopathic medicines works v well for abscess

#BreastfeedingHurdles Hello Ma'am... Dr. Yatri Thacker... My baby is 1 month old... Last week he has mild cold due to that dry nose blockage and during sleeping he was making sound. Went to our Paed he prescribe antibiotic and cough drops for 5 days. Due to weather change again he is suffering from the same with Lil cough specially while feeding. My MIL is an advocate of homeopathy so she suggested two medicine alternate in 1 hr gap. Is it safe to give it my baby? I don't want antibiotics in this small age as well. Plz help. Using arsenic iod 30 n Sang Nit 30.

@ Nisha .... you seem to have crack nipple. This arises if the baby doesn’t latch properly. The baby should take maximum part of nipple and areola such that the black part around the nipple too is in baby s mouth.
For cracked nipple try applying mother care nipple shield cream. Also your own breast milk can be used on cracked nipple as it naturally has anti bacterial action. Till your nipple completely cures. Express milk and feed baby or use nipple shield

Rashmeet Kaur .... some babies are too eager to suck . So before BF calm them down by gently Swaying them or swaddling . Learn correct latching and positioning by visiting a laceration expert. At last have patience and perseverance

@Charu Rathor.... it’s absolutely safe to continue your iron and calcium medicines while BF

Priyanka Jaiswal ... an infant should gain 500 GMs to 1 kg every month till 1 yr of age. If not then see a lactation expert. Have lot of liquids / water which can enhance Breast milk.

#breastfeedinghurdles hello doctor Dr. Yatri Thacker thank you for taking this session...; My question is how to increase breast milk supply n how to know tat the baby is full?

Thank u so much Dr

Priti Raghuvanshi ... yes you can definitely exercise even if BF your baby. Having lots of liquid helps to enhance Breastmilk. As long as you are producing enough milk naturally , any medicines should not be taken.

Renu Grover ... breast feeding experience with every child is different. So pls don’t worry am sure you will do a grt job with second one . For natural breastmilk enhancement follow these guidelines 1) right positioning 2) correct latching 3) balances diet with lot of liquids 4) stress free environment 5) in case of complications take advice from laceration expert

Kusum Thakur ... pls consume at least 3 litres of water everyday. N observe your baby . Let me know if there are any other issues

Thanks a lot mam

Dr. Yatri Thacker thank you so much mam😊

@ Nisha sharma ... you can take hormone medicines but also understand it’s side effects like weight gain etc.
try using homeopathic medicine called lac defloratum 30. 4 pills every 4 hrly . If no change pls get in touch with me.

Eliza ... homeopathy works best for babies . Have treated many such cases . Cold , cough can be completely cured but self prescription is always harmful. Suggest you to take advice personally of an experienced homeopathic physician or get in touch with me

Thanks mam... She cry instantly and loudly after every half an hour nap... She wake up with loud and continue cry...she used to sleep very less

neha singhal .... For natural breastmilk enhancement follow these guidelines 1) right positioning 2) correct latching 3) balances diet with lot of liquids 4) stress free environment 5) in case of complications take advice from laceration expert 6) breast massage / warm compression before BF 7) nipple care 8) finally more you BF the baby on demand more milk is formed. So it works on demand and supply FOR KNOWING IF BABY IS FULL follow these guidelines 1) baby feeds at least 8-10 times a day 2) baby gains 500gms to 1kg every month till the age of 1 3) passes urine 6 to 10 times / day 4) passes motion 1-6 times a day 5) is healthy and looks satisfied post BF

Hello Dr. my left breast doesn't even produce 25 ml in 1 hr pumping session through double electric pump. i m pumping my left breast from past 3 days only as i lost my nipple shield so when i was using shield i felt i hav gud supply in both sides as many times i get sprays as well so now i don't why i m not able to pump well frm left one. whether milk supply has reduced now or earlier also it was less. also after using shield my baby doesn't feel full n demands more so dat means supply was already less..really confused please help me out and suggest some remedy.
This is the link ... all the issues of cracked nipple, inverted nipple, mastitis , abscess are explained in detail.
Pls see it , like it and share it for helping other new mums

Hello Dr. Yatri Thacker mam, I always feel hungry after each feeding is it normal and what should I eat to produce sufficient milk to my baby?

Kusum Thakur .... some babies have hypersensitive personality. Make her sleep in an area which has least disturbance like light and noise. Check for right temperature too. Yet if the baby cries without reason you can get in touch with me.

@ neha Singhal .... just before BF have 2 glasses of water . It works best

Ok mam thanks a lot... Yeah i think most of time my baby cries without reason...and frequent urination may be d reason.. What should i do for her hypersensitive personality

Upasana Mittal ... each time you feed your baby see to it that BF from one breast at a time. This will help to produce milk with same quantity on both sides. Also breast pump from the breast that the baby hasn’t fed on. Nipple shield is used only Incase if cracked / inverted nipple or flat nipple issue. Babies usually don’t like to feed with nipple shield so feed less. Pls see my link to understand better

My baby will complete 1 month tomorrow but he is very weak as my breast milk supply is also low and he don't take proper and sleeps wat to do

Sukhada Pujari while BF one losses around 300- 500 calories per day. About 20 calories per once.
So a lactating mom needs to consume 1800 - 2200 calories per day.
Have balanced diet / fresh cooked food and lots of liquid while BF

Kusum Thakur ... if too much of an issue you can consult me personally

OK man Dr. Yatri Thacker thank u so much..

reema jain ... 1 month old infant should feed 8 -10 times a day.
Follow these guidelines
For natural breastmilk enhancement follow these guidelines 1) right positioning 2) correct latching 3) balances diet with lot of liquids 4) stress free environment 5) in case of complications take advice from laceration expert 6) breast massage / warm compression before BF 7) nipple care 8) finally more you BF the baby on demand more milk is formed.

If yet no improvement you can consult a lactation expert or get in touch with me
