Firstly, relax. Anxiety reduced milk supply. You should tell yourself that any mammal will produce enough milk for how many ever babies she has. Drink plenty of water and liquids Include oats, fenugreek, garlic in your diet Massage breasts Using breast pump can help Let babies suckle as frequently as possible Enjoy the mommy-baby feeding time without getting stressed If babies cry, pacify then by talking/singing to them, and then feed them Most important to to avoid stress Message me if you have further queries.
