Take Zincum met 200 3pills daily at bedtime for 3 days then get back to me for further details.
To enhance the milk production you need to have nutritious food with more protein Fat minerals Vitamins and proper meals 4 times a day. Drink more milk and have more Curd. Increase fruits intake. If you have Faith in Homeopathic medicine you can use following medication To increase breast milk: (1) Galega Q - 20 drops thrice Daily in some water for one month (2) Ricinus Com Q - 10 drops thrice Daily in some water for one month (3) Alfalfa Q - 20 drops thrice Daily in some water for one month. Use Homeopathic medicine Under supervision of qualified physician only. For more information you can consult me in person through Lybrate.
Hello- Low breast milk supply can be due to certain illnesses, consumption of birth-control pills, certain hormonal changes in the body, nutritional deficiencies, improper latching position of the baby and infrequent breastfeeding due to cracked / inverted nipples. Certain galactagogue herbs (in ayurveda) like shatavari kalpa etc and specific tips like full milk diet can offer significant help in this condition.
