a few tips
by: Tracy

Hi new mommy

Why do you think your milk supply is low?

Here is a page that will help if you are not sure...

Is my baby getting enough milk?

If your baby is producing enough urine and poop nappies and picking up weight, you most probably are producing enough milk. Here is info on the minimum urine and bowel movement output...

Infant stools

Also, are you supplementing? supplementing can decrease supply. The more you breastfeed, the more your body will produce.

Have you tried herbs for increasing supply?
Here is a recipe that I use to increase supply.

Because your baby is premature, your breastfeeding problems may be due to a bad latch. Do you have somebody that can help you? have you thought of contacting a lactation consultant in your area? Here is a page on latching on that might help.
