good evening, milk production basically increases if u r happy , tension free , worry free , pain and ailment free, free of doubts that if u have enough milk or nit , free of negative thoughts. there r two hormones responsible for this- oxytocin and prolactin , both will do their jobs best if u r happy and if u feed the child frequently- that is when ever he cries for milk, there should be no strict time table for feeding, mean while improve ur nutrition status, keep ur surroundings as well as ur inner mind content and happy. keep ur child by ur side most of the time possible, the cry of the child, the smile of the child, the look of the child and the frequent sucking of the child will be enough to secrete enough milk. kindly avoid supplements as far as possible. mothers milk is the best source of food for ur child.
