Hi Sarah,

I have a 5 month old daughter and breastfeeding as well! It's been working out great so far! :-)
In order to increase milk production, the best foods that have worked for me which i make sure I consistently eat daily are the following:

1)Oatmeal with fresh fruits and a sprinkle of flax seeds for breakfast.
2)A smoothie (various fruits) with brewers yeast, flax and chia seeds for a morning snack. They say that brewers yeast found in beer helps with milk production. You can try non-alcoholic beer also!
3) Different types of vegetable soups with a sandwhich (protein) for lunch.
4) kashi granola bars (various) for an afternoon snack with a fruit.
5) a healthy protein meal with vegetables or salad for supper.

Also make sure that you are very relaxed while breastfeeding as it helps with let down!

I hope this helps! :-)

I would suggest reading some books about parenting. If we were to list all the advice here it would take days to read.
Most of us have had to learn as we go as babies don't come out with a manual. Use your instincts.
