Q:

Does galact granules is more effective than mother Horlicks in breast milk production ...please share your experience... Thank you



Subha

My gynac told that mother's Horlicks doesn't help in milk secretion.
1. She suggested me galact and I took galact granules.
2. She also suggested lactare tablets, but only for 1 week she asked me to take(morning -1, afternoon -1, night -1)
3. Atleast 2 glass of milk is must in a day (morning and night)
4. I use to soak a teaspoon of fenugreek seeds in water and gulp it the next day morning (I learnt that it helps lots of women)
5. Garlic- you can boil milk with some mashed garlic and have it or you can roast in ghee with some salt and pepper and mix with white rice and have it. it tastes yummy
6. Ajwain water (1 glass is enough)
7. Also heard that baby corn helps(my mother-in-law has told)
8. Fish (not sure which fish, cos I don't eat)
9. Oats
10. Almonds and any nuts
11. Lots of liquid (can be water, juice,milk,etc)
Mainly stimulation increases supply. Feed ON DEMAND. Feed every 2-3hrs. After feeding your baby, try to pump and take out the milk completely. Thep more empty the breasts, the faster the secretion will be. Have enough sleep. Even if you get some 20mins, sleep and relax. Shared everything that I know :) Happy parenthood!!

commercial products are only taste enhancers.
as Subha has mentioned all neatly u can try n take shatavari granules, dryfruit laddoo,alvi n lactative foods.
galact is not advisable more than a week.
