    Default I would like to share few personal tips to increase milk supply.

    Hello everyone.

    I've been reading many threads concerning low milk supply & how to increase it. So i thought to share my personal tips that i found very effective, might be help for anyone around here. DS is my third child & first BFing experience, couldn't BF first two because of some reasons.....

    Here we go:

    1- Eating banana with a very warm glass of milk before bed.

    2- A mixcher of nuts & semolina made with our traditional method, its called "Panjeeri". Very nutritious indeed --- I can post the recipe if anyone interested?

    3- Taking a quick hot shower before bed realy helped at night & in the morning for day time.

    4- Plenty of fluids.

    5- Taking prenatal vitamins does make a big difference for me.


    anyone else would like to share?

    I still struggle some days, and other days are a breeze, but I'm exclusively b/f an adopted baby, and here's my advice.

    nurse, nurse, nurse
    oatmeal
    fenugreek
    blessed thistle
    domperidone (although I haven't noticed a huge difference)
    high protein diet
    lots of calcium
    lots of vitamin B
    fennel or anise tea
    basil
    a ton of water
    lots of rest
    co sleeping
    I've also read that walnuts are a definite NO NO, so if your like me and a vegetarian trying to eat a high protein diet, don't look to walnuts for protein.
