My baby is 15 days old still she is not drinking breast milk. She is almost on formula milk which I want to avoid completely. I try to give breast milk by using breast pump whenever possible. But I want to feed my baby only with breast milk. Problem is I'm not getting much milk production. Its almost very very less. I am unable to feed her fully even one time in a day even after using lactare tab. Also baby is not directly drinking breast milk. Please guide how I can increase my milk production to fully provide my milk to baby without giving formula milk and how to help baby to directly start sucking my milk directly without using breast pump and bottles to feed breast milk.

Take tab reglan 1tds for a week. check your nipples, are they small? If they are, than try to stretch them. Put your baby on ur breast as frequently as possible. Learn proper breastfeeding technique as sometimes baby is not able to breathe during feed.
