hello mounika...no food to be atleast atleast till 5 months...from 5 months u can introduce fruits pure...but now nothing can be given a part from milk...give frequent feeding keep feeding in every 10 - 15 min like this body will come to know how much milk baby required and body will start producing more milk...and u should have more liquid intake like water . juice . lassi . milk..
u can also give formula milk to your baby
.but do consult ur doctor before.

How do you know that you have less BM? To make your baby strong there is nothing more nutritious than BM. Drink lots of fluid yourself and always keep in mind and tell yourself that you can produce milk to satiate your baby. It really works. And the more your baby drinks the more you produce. Let other food wait till 6 months.

Rakhi Puri (beautyofmommying)

babies should be exclusively breastfed till 6 month and then you can start weaning... check with your pediatric...

but why do u feel ur supply is lpw ?

Sheetal Rai

hi I would suggest u stick to breastfeeding. and if it's very low talk to ur paed and start formula milk. it's best to avoid other foods till 6 months. but dont do it without consulting ur doctor.

tell urself that u can.. that thinking will carry forward to ur brain.. then the particular hormones starts working to produce milk.. this s first step u shud care mentally.. nd then frequent feed will help ur body to produce enough milk to baby.. nd then.. concentration on foods.. drink milk fresh juices .. veg soups.. increasing ur watery intake.. nd have some warm bath will help.. nd always drink a glass of water before feeding.. 👍oly breastfeeding upto six months...

Anusha Karthik

hi dont give anything other than breast milk till 6 months of age.. eat healthy.. consult a lactation specialist for foods to boost ur milk supply..
