If you want to make more milk in your body for breastfeeding, you need to nurses your baby more and more. Nurse your baby whenever he/she is hungry and as long as she/he wants. And you should nurse your baby especially in the first few weeks of establishing your supply and offer the other breast when the first is empty. And you also should not follow a strict schedule.
To maintain your milk supply and your own health you need to get about 300 to 500 calories per day more than what you needed to keep your pre-pregnancy weight. And the best diet for a nursing women is a normal, healthy, balanced diet rich in fruits, veggies and whole grains.
Message your Breasts
Message your breast near the chest and then a little further toward the nipple and wait for your baby to take a couple of swallows. Breast massage can help to boost the volume and fat content of your milk.
Drink Plenty of Water
You will make less milk, if you get dehydrated. Keep a bottle of water with you and stash bottles where you usually nurse. And you can also try to eat foods that are naturally rich with water such as fruits and vegetables.
Lack of sleep is rough on your milk production. And you can take a “nursing vacation.” You can also spend a couple of days doing as little as possible other than relaxing with your baby, resting, eating and nursing.
You should also seek out other new moms who are breastfeeding and lean on each other. And ask them what helped. And if you are feeling vulnerable while you are getting your milk supply established, avoid people who are critical or don’t support your breastfeeding or who make it hard for you to nurse.
Hey, I am a person who likes to think positive about life. There are many things I like to experience, like to do and to see. I like to think, I like to dream, I like to see the sunrise in the morning and also like to see the moonlight at night. I want to feel the music flowing on my face and like to smell the wind coming from the ocean. I also like to look at the clouds in the sky with a blank mind. I like good books and thriller movies. I always wanted to be a great writer, like Victor Hugo and Roman Roland, who have influenced millions of people through their books. I am just doing some teaching, some writing and some research. But my dream is still alive. I like to write an article on different topics, where I try to provide important information that will meet the need of the people.
