 Frequently Asked Questions

Q: My sister has just delivered a baby boy. But she has no breast milk. What should she do? My niece is 3 days old.

Savita (Elgin, USA)

A: In the first 3-4 days after birth there will be no breast milk. There will however be a substance called colostrum. There will only be a few drops of colostrum each day. The baby does not need any more than this in the first few days. It is very important that the baby be allowed to suckle on this colostrum because it not only helps in stimulating the production of breast milk but also provides some valuable antibodies that help the child. Breastmilk will generally start 3-4 after delivery. We suggest you read the section on Baby's diet on our site. It contains an enormous amount of information on this topic.
