Mother's milk is best for baby so it is good you have decided to revive it. Take lactare capsules, nutritious diet, good protein and try patiently. As for convincing the baby, if he does not latch then you can express breast milk and feed him through bottle or spoon. If you would like to discuss in detail you can contact me.

The only way is feeding frequently. Take the child to paediatrician and depending on the examination of child advice will be given.

I am taking galact granules twice in a day. And lactate and perinorm tablet twice in a day. And I discontinued taking lactate and perinorm. And my breast milk drastically decreased. Even if I consume one more scoop of galact the breast milk is not produced properly. Is that because of discontinuing perinorm tablet?

Is alfalfa mother tincture safe for breastfeeding mom. It said 68% alcohol on the bottle. Will it affect the baby who is nursing?

Alfalfa has been used as food and medicine for centuries. Historically, its medical uses included the treatment digestive disorders, arthritis, and kidney problems. It is one of the main sources of food for livestock including horses, goats, and dairy cows. However, according to the drugs and lactation database, there are no scientifically valid clinical trials to support its use during breastfeeding. There is limited data regarding how much and which components of alfalfa transfer into the breast milk. Moderate alcohol consumption by a breastfeeding mother (up to 1 standard drink per day) is not known to be harmful to the infant, especially if the mother waits at least 2 hours before nursing. So how much mother tincture you are advised to take for breast milk?

I am a breastfeeding mother. I have very low milk supply and I am mainly using formula for feeding. Can I use demelan cream (kojic acid, glycolic acid, arbutin) now to reduce pigmentation. Will it affect my baby. He is getting my breast milk in very little amount.

Gynaecologist,
For increasing the amount of breast milk, you can start shatawari powder 2 teaspoons full in 1 glass of milk daily for 2-3 months. Avoid using demelan cream, as you are breast feeding.

Don't use a cream which the baby can ingest. Pigmentation is a pregnancy change, which no cream can take away.
