My baby is 21 days old. Initially I was not having breast milk. Then I started taking lactate capsules and now I am able to feed him. I am a bit worried about the quantity of milk. whether it will be sufficient for him I am taking 2 tab thrice daily as prescribed by doctor. I arm also taking lactate granules twice daily. Will this hav any side effect on baby. I am feeding him in a gap of three hours and each feed takes least 30 to 45 min.

The Lactare capsule is good to induce milk formation and it will not affect the baby in any way . You can know if the feeding is enough for the baby by checking his weight every 2 weeks . If the weight is progressively increasing the feeding is good
