Lactation problems Questions

I'm a 26 year old woman with no past pregnancy. My sister gave birth to a baby and unfortunately passed away. I am thinking of inducing breast milk in me so that I can feed her baby. Is it possible? Are there any side effects for me? What will be the procedure?

Hello lybrate-user, breast milk production is a normal physiological activity after deliver a child under hormonal influence. Your body in in not position to induce milk, so your equerry is not suitable for your body, try other option. After 4-6 month babies can able to eat other than milk so nutrition issue is not so big.

No, baby sucking helps in bonding between mother and baby. This increases the milk hormone oxytocin which increases milk production.

Can take but if you are under impression that it is because of that you are getting proper lactation and then it is not so.

Meet paediatrician first. Paediatrician will confirm whether baby is getting enough or not if not enough top feed will be required.

Actually none of medicine is of much help only frequent feeding and nothing by top feeding may increase. But more important thing is to take baby to paediatrician to decide whether baby needs to give top feeding.

If she is 9 months old, she must be on solids. Milk will come down in quantity, but is sufficient. You can take lactare bu it is not of much use. Plan to wean her by 1 year.

As time passes by the milk will reduce and you can take Lactare capsules thrice a day and feed with a spoon. Now the baby needs homemade foods also along with milk.

Apart from the medicine, drink lots of water, put baby to breast frequently and take more of Fenugreek and fennel in your diet.
