Dr. Riddhi Kataria

How old is your baby? How many feeds happen in 24 hours? How long does one feed last? How many times does baby pass urine and stool in 24 hours? What was your baby s Birth weight & the present weight of the baby. This is to understand if milk supply is less or no.

Sushma Korlepara

As long as it is six wet diapers per day it is fine. You can eat garlic, oats, almonds to increase milk production. Also nurse her every two hours emptying both the breasts. This will increase the supply. Hope it is helpful.
