Breastfeeding Challenges

Not Enough Breast Milk

If you don't have enough Breast Milk, then the first and foremost important thing to do is to increase breast stimulation. So if you have a good nursing baby, we want moms to increase her time at breast as much as she can throughout day and night. If the baby's a so-so nurser, we'll have the moms again attempt to nurse as much as possible, but we're gonna follow it up with some pumping, so that the breasts get added stimulation.

Foods to Increase Breast Milk

Foods to Increase Breast Milk are hard to identify. However, dark beer may work. There's really no good clinical trials to show that it works or doesn't work. And what may be helpful in dark beer are the hops and grains. Again, we're not really sure. It's anecdotal, it's mother tells mother. And two herbs that people think may be helpful are fennel and fenugreek. Although food is not nearly as important as we once thought, mothers certainly need to be well nourished with good healthy food.
