I recently had penicillin prescribed,maybe a coincidence but now when I try to express milk hardly any is produced.Also I was expressing & feeding my 10 week old regularly,but in the last 2 weeks ive not been able to express as much due to not being at home.How can I increase milk production ? Also how do I know if my baby is recieving enough ?
Ive breast fed 3 now grown children for their first year of life. Ok... breastfeeding is tough. You run into lots of questions and need help along the way. Plus its horribly pain the 1st few months. Ok... to get more milk... 1st and foremost u need to be drinking lots of liquids at home. You need lots of non caffeinated liquids to drink in order to produce enough milk. 2nd if u can stop expressing milk out. Put you baby to your breast to nurse on a normal frequent schedule and try to stick to it. Something about the babies mouth on your breast sucking and stimulating the milk glands bring your milk on and causes your milk to drop. Be shre your drinking enough to make milk and nurse on as regular? a schedule that u cann. Expressing milk out or pumping dont remove all the milk. Your body gets confused and thinks u need less because the baby itself hasnt been nursing as much on the breast. So your body starts supplying what it thinks u need and now what u avctually need.
