A. Dear Mamma,
why do you think your supply is low? Baby crying constantly, baby wanting to feed constantly, breasts feeling soft, breasts not leaking, not enough coming out when pumping are not indicators of supply.
Every mother has colostrum from the time she is 12 weeks pregnant unless there is a medical condition. The more the baby sucks in the initial stages, the quicker the more mature milk comes in and the brain gets a signal to produce more. Breastfeeding works on a demand and supply basis. The more you feed the more your body will produce. As long as the baby has a pee count of six-plus in twenty-four hours then your baby is getting enough.
During the early months, the baby cluster feeds (more feeding in the evening), there are growth spurts and sleep regressions and none of this is a sign of low supply. Your body automatically adjusts to baby's demand. Please provide plenty of skin to skin and unrestricted access to the breast and latch baby on frequently.
Swallowing a spoonful of raw methi seeds every day also helps, Please keep yourself well hydrated.
If you do want to give a top-up, avoid formula and give expressed milk using a spoon. And if you do want to use a bottle then please use the slowest flow nipple and follow paced bottle feeding so that baby does not go through nipple preference/ confusion.
Do talk to a lactation consultant if needed.
Do you hear your baby suck and swallow? Do you think there is a latch problem, in that case, check out Nipple Flipple technique on YouTube and also Health Spoken Tutorial - IIT Bombay for cross cradle latch and other useful videos that can help you.

A. Hi your baby is having teeth growth that is why baby is sucking thumb or fingers. You need to massage baby's gums, also give baby teether so that baby chew it to get relief from teeth growth pain and doesn't suck in thumb or finger
No supplement is required if
1. The baby is in a healthy weight range
2. The baby is eating well
3. Baby has achieved all the milestones and is happy and active
This is the best time to develop healthy eating habits, so better to avoid such products
A. Dear Dad,
Morning sickness is very common. Give lemon juice with ginger . You can also give biscuits or rusk that reduce the nauseatic feeling.
Try to chew mint leaves that also reduce the feeling of nausea.
A. Dear Mom
Cerelac is a packaged food. It may contain preservatives and other chemicals, hence not recommended for daily use. It can be used while traveling or emergency.
Home made foods like Dal rice, khichadi, upma, daliya, sheera , fruits , vegetables soup are the best for the babys growth.
A. hi actually gripe water is something like which we we used to have from the birth that it completely depends on the family Street to it us so many reviews also but according to me yes you can give no worries
