hi it's been 1 day since birth there is no milk from my breast. Please suggest

Sonali Shivlani

It's normal. Milk production starts 48-72 hours post birth. However you should make some drops of colostrum in the first couple of days. Please latch baby to the breast 8-10 times in 24 hours to provide adequate Stimulation.

give as much skin to skin contact with baby as possible, let baby suckle it will stimulate the milk flow. also, the first drops of colostrum produced is very important for baby...
