Brief Answer: just frequent suckling Detailed Answer: Hi XXXXXXX Good you are trying to increase the breast milk production. Keep it up - that psychological will is very important. Drink more fluids. Drink lot of milk. Keep suckling frequently---- that is let the baby suck more frequently. Empty both breasts at one time . Next time start with the other side .. Lactate is good . There is also a complan preparation called maplan for breastfeeding mothers. Relax while feeding. If every thing fails ten you can start on ( lactogen 1 ). Formula feeds as slash resort. Good luck God bless Dr Uma

I am planning to use galact granules. I have heard about fenugreek tablets also. which is the best option?
Answered by Dr. Uma Rajah Ananth 7 hours later
Brief Answer: may be galact! Detailed Answer: Hi, Galact granules is another aurvedic preparation. It works. for some.. Fenugreek should be used in moderation. It has some side effects like reducing blood sugar and uterine cramps. Pl try one after another so that if you get some side effects you will know which one is the cause. You can start with galact first and see. God bless Dr Uma
