Health Tip: Got Enough Breast Milk?
Medical news

 

While most women produce enough breast milk to feed their babies, low milk supply is a concern for many mothers.

The womenshealth.gov website suggests how to help increase milk supply:


When feeding, ensure that baby is properly latched and positioned on the breast.


Feed frequently, letting baby determine when he or she needs to eat and when to stop.
During feeding, offer both breasts. Let baby feed from the first breast until sucking slows, then offer the second breast.
Don't offer baby cereal or formula to help maintain interest in breast milk. Hold off on solid food until baby is at least 6 months old.
Restrict pacifier use.
