In the initial days of parenthood, breastfeeding takes up most of your waking and sleeping hours! Usually, moms produce enough milk to meet their baby’s requirements. However, some may experience inadequate breast milk production. Often this is a temporary phase which can be corrected with appropriate remedies and support once the cause is identified.


Common reasons for inadequate milk supply:

  1. Supplementing with formula can make your baby suckle less at the breast. This inhibits milk supply
  2. Long gaps between feeds or feeds of very short durations
  3. Excessive use of pacifiers
  4. Lack of nutrition and hydration in the mom
  5. Baby having jaundice
  6. Premature birth
  7. Lack of proper latching required for breastfeeding
  8. Low thyroid hormone i.e. mom having hypothyroidism


Homeopathic remedies to increase milk supply

Homeopathic drugs are completely safe and extremely effective in restoring or improving poor breast milk supply. These remedies can help both the mom and the baby mentally and physically.
