Question: My wife has underwent a Cesarian section and delivered a baby on May 19,2014. Both mother and baby are safe. Day by day, the production of milk in my wife decreased and we started using Farex stage 1 for feeding the baby . Can you please suggest any medicines so that my wife gets enough production of milk to feed the baby?

Brief Answer:
conservative methods are only hope

Detailed Answer:
Welcome to healthcare Magic!
The milk production is dependant on frequent suckling by the infant and will gradually improve or decrease according to that.
Other factors that are helpful in improving milk flow are ample rest, fluid intake in excess of 3 litres in a day, high protein diet and diets having Calories in excess some 600Calories over and above the daily energy expenditure.
Because she has already started the baby on other supplement, she is unlikely to pick up. But you should still try.
There are no medicines for milk secretion.
I hope the advise would be informative and useful for you.
