    Default Need advice

    Hello,

    I m new mom and these days a bit depressed coz of few challenges with breastfeeding....seeking advice from you.

    My baby is 9 weeks now, he is on total breastfeeding, till 6th week my milk supply was very good, but after that suddenly i got very severe stomach pain and doctors found that i had acute Pancreatitis becoz of gall stones in gall bladder. So was hospitalized for 10 days in hospital till 5 days i was on drip(No food no drink) after that started food and my pain is no more now but 1 week i had heavy anti biotics so doctor adviced me to not to breastfeed.
    Now everything is okay and i started breastfeeding him since 3 days, milk is coming but not in good quantity,even though I m feeding him in every 3-4 hours. pls advice me how to increase my milk supplies, r there any supplements or foods to increase it?????????? is it advisable to buy breast pump will it help me?

    I just started taking this.. I am hoping it works for me as it has worked for many others I heard!

    Aside from feeding often and pumping, I also heard that Fenugreek and Blessed Thistle also work.
