but he rejects to drink later i tried it to

Dr.Srujana Kona( PT)

Please squeeze milk n store or u may discard them if u feel u have enough milk. While feeding, u just press the nipple of other breast for few seconds, that leaking will be stopped.


Why not donate it to another Mom in need?


in this phase it's normal. it will take some time to regularise to baby's need. until that you can pump out the milk and refrigerate it in cooling bags  to build a stash . in future it'll be helpful for the baby. invest in some good quality pump. I'm using Philips avent manual pump

tnk god fo dis... hea mny moms r worried fo low lactation... u r geting it so utilise it.... m woried don hav sufficient lactation to feed...


All helpful moms gave amazing answers already.  be careful about position you breastfeed in. baby might be coughing because the position is not right and might be going into his air pipe.


Fameeda there is nothing called as low milk supply unless there is some issue ur suffering from. Just ensure that you keep feeding when baby demands. The more u feed, the more the beast muscles work and milk supply regularises.

try to express milk before u r about to feed. and if u have enough supply and a taking care of ur baby full time u need not store milk. u can simply discard it. for the leaking u can either use disposable breast pads or washable one.
