Hi Pari,
When you feel that milk is not getting sufficient at all then you have to chose an alternative.

Hi Pari,
Colic might good medicine but parents for every cough or sneeze there is no need of providing colic medicine to them so you must have to chose some other option for that.

Hi Pari,
As a mother it will be disturb you a lot.But due to hormonal problem only milk would not be coming for you.Find does any pills will help you to work out.

Hi Pari,
You can try through milk banks.You would get milk from there and their will not be any trouble for your baby also.I wish you would get milk as early as possible.Do not get tensed or panic they are tested only.

Hey pari

This is something you have to take care of.It better you have to see your doctor in regard to the milk production.Why dont you use some lactating granules that will stimulate the production of milk.Hence lactating mothers when you are in lack of them,so you have to see your doctor.

I stay in pune....have no idea where u r based....here is a list of a few things that definitely helped me...have 2 kids now....my son was born when my daughter was exactly 2 yrs old....and i'ev been expressing and keeping my milk in both cases....so trust me these ideas help...
1. Methi / fenugreek leaves....eevn the seeds powdered and added to ur veggies & dals help,
2. Shatavari Kalpa ( powder / tablets) - these are ayurvedic and available in all medical shops here....they also help avoid constipation
3. If possible, hold the baby at one breast, and try expressing milk from the other....even slight sucking will help the letdown
4. Aaliv....i don't know what they r called in english, but laddoos made out of these, or even adding these seeds to your milk( make kheer), help
5. I was in kerala and did not hve access to all these, so the doctor prescribed ' PRO-PL ', which is pretty much like mothers horlicks. believe me it helped, even when i was heavily stressed out....my baby was admitted for pneumonia and would not suck.
6. Bajre ki roti ( bhakri) also helps, but also causes constipation.
I do hope these methods will help.

Hi Pari,
I did face the problem of less breast milk.
My doctor prescribed 'GALACT' granules, which is purely ayurvedic, 2 spoons in a glass of milk, twice a day. If u r in India, u will get this in medical shops.
Also try taking 'Mothers Horlicks' with milk, instead of plain milk.
Most important is to include Sprouted Green gram (moong) in ur diet. also take leaves of drumstick (make a dry dish out of it) . If possible, take them everyday and this works.

Subject:  express milk
hi again pari,
i am writing my own experience and it may or may not work for you.
also,i had to be highly motivated to do the expressing,as i had to spend a lot of time and energy in it.and with a first newborn baby it was not easy.
but,i have to say i enjoyed the struggle.and,it feels good that i gave her at least some of my milk.
but,again,there is some luck involved.so,do not think it is your fault if it does not work out.and you will need some kind of support too.
important thing is to be relaxed(if possible) and enjoy your baby's growth.

anyway,coming to the point,for nearly one month i hardly got any milk by expressing.
i used to pump almost every 2-3 hours and very little comes in the beginning.
but,whatever you get is better than none.it takes time for our body to produce more milk.but,once it starts you will be surprised how much milk we can make.
it may take anywhere between 2-4 weeks for the milk to come in an easy flow.

next point,if you are planning to pump regularly ,you will need a good electric pump as you cannot pump with hands so often.so,invest according to your budget.but,it is worth spending more if this is what you want to do.

about tips for better flow...
1.most important,be regular,express every 3-4 hours,even in the night.you have to usually continue to express even in the night at least once or twice later on too,otherwise the flow usually reduces.
2.try a hot drink when expressing.
3.relax and think about your baby.,look at it or it's photo.it may sound funny,but we get more milk when baby cries.that does not mean you need to rush to express whenever baby cries. but,whenever you get a 'let down',which means you can feel milk coming down,try and express soon after,especially in the starting few days.
4.eat plenty,we need 1000 extra calories when breast feeding.drink enough fluids,water,juices etc.take rest whenever your baby rests.
5.try some traditional tips like fenugreek water and other things.
6.lastly,i had lot of gas problem with cow's milk and so did my baby.so,do not overdo drinking milk if it affects you.as long as you drink ,eat and rest well,the milk will flow.

sorry for the long mail,but this is what i had to say.let me know if it was useful and tell me of you need anything else.

take care,
deepu.

Breast milk is based on supply in demand.not only good diet is necessary you have to pump out in regular intervals.the more you pump you will produce more.try it at regular interval even when you dont have enough milk and be relaxed.
