Brief Answer:
Continue trying, it may take time for some

Detailed Answer:

Thanks for asking on this platform

I have gone through the query and do understand your concern.
This is quite normal particularly for new mother(first baby) and if delivery is through surgery.
But still in most of the cases with time milk production increases. I would suggest you, not to get anxious;continue feeding as frequent as possible.
Perinorm and lactonic helps in producing more milk but the thing is that as frequent and as more as he will suck on your breast more will be the milk production.
Take Plenty of fluids with high calorie food fir better milk production. Each time before giving top feed try breast feed.

I am sure the milk production will increase with all these measures.
All the best

Brief Answer:
Continue stimulation while feeding

Thanks for follow up

During initial few days of life baby may sleep for longer duration. As they grow their sleep pattern gets But you should not get worried for that. You just continue stimulating her while feed by tickling sole or behind the ears.
Make yourself comfortable while feeding.
You may use pillow in your lap as this helps in keeping baby at breast level and you need not to lean forward.
Her whole body should be in a plane with head end up(neck should not be flexed). Turn her whole body towards yourself and keep her closer to your body. Her chin should touch the nipple and mouth should be wide open with lower lip everted out.
Check the urine frequency and if it is more than 6 times a day, it suggests that the baby is getting adequate amount of milk.

I hope these measures will help you in proper feeding.

Does perinorm tablet help increase breast milk for a feeding mother to a newborn baby of 3-4 weeks? What are the other alternatives to increase breast milk other than a healthy diet? Any natural boosters? Is breast milk pump of any help in increasing the milk flow over time? How do we know if the milk produced is sufficient or not? The Baby came back to birth weight of 3.1 kgs after 2 wks after loosing 100gms initially on day 4...and is gaining weight at the rate of 20gms per day in wk3. Please suggest. Are there any side-effects of perinorm?
