Milk supply is low, how can i produce more milk?
Drink heaps of water, try milkweed or fenugreek tea and most importantly, BE HAPPY! Being in an environment where you're made to feel uncomfortable is the worst for milk flow. Also, feed more often and on demand: the suckling actually helps the let-down, as well as thinking loving thoughts about your special little bundle (releases oxytocin, the love hormone that overwhelms you when you first bond with your baby). Try not to stress too much and don't place too much pressure on yourself to perform... you're not a jersey cow! ^__~ Hope that helps! -- T.

Hey there, you can also try the herbal supplement called Fenugreek. You can take 2-4 daily and you will see a boost in your milk supply! You can find it at GNC and most other places that sell supplements or vitamins. My Dr told me about this, so I trusted the advice and it worked. Good Luck!

from the stress from my abusive ex my milk started to dry up so i started taking fenugreek tablets from the chemist. i also went to my dr and she put me on anti nausea tablets cause one of the side effects is lactation in non bf ppl. i also started eating more smaller meals and lots of water. LOTS OF WATER lol iv also been feeding my son every 2 hours to make more milk. i went from not being able to express anymore then 30ml hours after my sons gone to sleep to being able to express 90ml an hour after i feed my son during the day =) so you can bring your milk back dont let anybody say you cant
