Using Lactare capsules to increase milk production. Also giving formula feed. Continue?

Hello doctor, I have been using lactare capsules 3 times a day for the past 10 days to increase milk production for my 1 month old son. Though I see a difference, my son is not satisfied sometimes after the feed. Should I continue the medicine for some more days or stop? The baby seems to be satisfied with mother s milk after a 45-50 min feed. We are also using the formula milk after every feed. Should I continue giving formula feed too? Pls advise.

Thanks for your query.
Relax,milk production depends on many factors..
-Feed your baby in relaxed environment.
-Be positive ,do not thing you are producing less milk,it sends a negative signal to your brain.
-Sucking stimulates milk production,more baby sucks more will be milk so i suggest you to do exclusive breast feeding.
-Improve your diet,take plenty of fluids,milk,nuts,fruits and balanced diet.
-You can take supplements for few more days.

If your baby is active,gaining weight and passing adequate urine there is nothing to worry.

Take care.
God bless.
