What measures should a mother take to increase milk production ?

Hello Doctor! My new born boy baby is 45 days old. My milk secretion is normal during day time. Baby is normally drinking my milk during day time but he is crying a lot, during night time (10pm-1am) at the time of feeding . It seems my milk secretion (around 20 ml) is low and milk is not sufficient for him. Please tell me the reason for this and advice me how to increase the milk secretion. Thanks in advance.

Welcome to HCM,
As milk secretion is fine during day time so there should not be any problem with secretion at night time.
In fact your baby might have Infantile colic which is very common at night.
Nothing to worry, this will remain for 2-3 months.
You can give antispasmodic drops when required.
Ok and bye.
