Q: after delivery; how many days takes to come milk from breast

Sonali Shivlani

Some women produce colostrum even during pregnancy. Once the placenta has delivered colostrum production starts but this is very little and may not be very noticeable. It is important that baby is latched to the breast every two to three hours as this will ensure stimulation and the milk flow will start between 24 to 72 hours. Latch and stimulation should happen from birth and should be done even if there is no milk coming.

Dr. Shilpitha Shanthappa

Check the pee count of baby.. if it is more than 7 then it is absolutely normal.. dont switch to formula.. one n only mantra to increase BM is to feed more n often.. and whenever you feed the baby, just put him over your chest, this helps as tummy time, burping and also secure for him.. try to swaddle baby..

Q: My baby is 6.5 months old. Have started with giving her dal water, rice water, apple, spinach.. currently giving her only twice a day. When should I increase the frequency of meals from 2 to 3??

Rachita Choudhary

It also depends on how well your baby is adapting to food or liquid other than breast milk.
You should gradually increase the portions.
