Q:

Hello, how to increase milk production. I tried breastfeeding my baby but my milk production is very less due to which my baby stomach is not full. Also I am facing flat nipple problem. Please help



Hi
Use nipple shield to feed your baby.
Breast feeding, it's a mind game. If you think u can, your hormones play the game positively. If you think you cannot they play negatively. If you have positive thoughts the led down refluxes release oxytocin which is the major hormones that helps releasing milk. If you are stressed this hormone is suppressed by adrenalin in the brain to decrease the amount of milk. When a mother nurses, not only do her blood oxytocin levels increase, but her body makes more receptors, permanently
increasing her feelings of love;and this is a cycle your baby in turn does the same. So more latching more milk.. If your baby's pee count is six to seven times a day and gaining adequate weight then it's a sign of well fed baby.
Include ajwain, cumin seeds, fennel seeds, garlic, turmeric, pepper, fenugreek, bottle guard, drumstick, Oatmeal, carrots, barley to improve the milk supply
