Health Tip: Got Enough Breast Milk?

Suggestions to help boost supply

(HealthDay 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.
