Let s debunk the myth! Breast size is completely irrelevant when it comes to feeding your child. The size of your breasts depends on how much fatty tissue they contain and this has nothing to do with the amount of milk your breasts can produce. Your homeopath may suggest you Agnus Castus, one of the most effective homeopathic remedies to increase the quantity and the flow of breast milk. It will also help you if you are feeling low due to your inability to feed your baby because of the lack of sufficient breast milk.

This is an old wives tale and purely a myth! Although milk has not got any direct connection with the quantity of breast milk produced, milk mixed with garlic has been proven to be an excellent lactation stimulant. Take 2-3 garlic cloves, finely grate them and boil the garlic in drinking water. Take one cup of boiled milk and add it to the mixture of water and garlic. Stir the mixture and allow it to cool, after which you can add a little honey or sugar for taste. Drink this every day in the morning for optimum results.
