Hi,

Please improve your nutrition and feed frequently as suckling by baby stimulates milk secretion. Even try to breast feed before you offer top feed. Few medical prescription like Shatawari powder or Galactone powder mixed and drank in milk and taken by the mother helps.

Take care. Hope I have answered your question. Let me know if I can assist you further.
