The medicines for increasing the breast milk will be prescribed by your gynecologist. Many times if the baby's position attachment attachment to the breast is not proper which leads to decreased in amount of breastmilk reaching the baby. There are many videos on YouTube which you can see to get the proper attachment and position that the baby and mother should have during breastfeeding. Also it is very important to keep the mother encouraged and have a less stressful time during this period. Initial thick milk is known as colostrum which is very good for the baby and should not be thrown away also many times the parents think that the milk is not enough but at the end the baby might be giving good weight and having adequate weight gain. Meet the child specialist in your area to find more about breastfeeding.
Hi, Ask your Wife to take plenty of water and a glass of water or juice or milk before feeding the baby. Ask her to relax, stress and depression will further decrease her. Mother’s usually take a week to 10 days to produce milk. Take spinach, dhill leaves and gourd vegetables which as water. Babies are very active at night, so they feed very often. Baby will demand to be carried at night, they may not be hungry. So try talking to baby, so baby knows that you are around.
