Any idea how else can I increase the milk flow?
Been pumping around 120ml every 5hr from each side.
Just feel to pump more and store more for my boy..
anyone has any suggestion?
Papaya Fish soup or Fenugreek from GNC.
the papaya fish soup still work even my boy is going 2 mths?
I would say latch/pump at shorter intervals.
pump before baby's feeding time to empty the breasts. and Fenugreek
- Water intake with minimum of 3 liter per day
- Massage your breast with hot towel before pumping
- Fish Papaya soup is recommended everyday if possible
Maybe you can consider supplements if you have tried above. I recommend Motherlove More milk Plus -best selling product for safely and effectively increasing breast milk within 24 to 48 hours
^There are a lot of foods other than fish papaya soup that can increase breastmilk supply. Google galactagogues or galactagogue foods. Examples of galactagogues are oats, spices like ginger, garlic, green leafy vegetables i.e. spinach, broccoli etc.
Aside from fenugreek, milk thistle supplement also helps in increasing breast milk supply.
Is the Motherlove More milk really works?
My son already 1 yr old, always think not enought supply for him and he refuse drink from bottle & formula milk, can i still try the prouduct?
Have anyone of your used or know about Scare Tea?
Pls share or any good solution to increase milk, thank you.
I believe latching regularly is the best way to maintain supply for extended breastfeeding. By latching on demand (8-12 times a day for newborn, about 8 times after that), I managed to breastfeed boy until 18 months old when deciding to wean him off.
Also, a healthy and balanced diet with sufficient fluid intake, rest and minimal stress.
If expressing at work, then do so at short intervals, e.g. 3-4 hours.
Btw, I'm petite and underweight, so home-visit nurse advised me to eat more good fats to produce creamy hindmilk. This means drinking 500ml of full cream milk daily, and eating more cheese / butter and cheesecake. I was hungry very easily while breastfeeding, so ate a lot of nutritious food to keep up with my boy's big appetite.
Some babies may have smaller appetite too.
Also check for 5-6 wet diapers per day. If so, milk supply should be fine for baby.

Disposable diapers can absorb a lot and is stay-dry, so it can be hard to track.
We've been using cloth diapers and my boy is a heavy wetter, changing every 2-3 hours in the day.
He pees a lot at night too.
Maybe you can check baby's diaper every 2 hours for colour / smell of pee?
Disposable diaper gives off a distinct smell when peed on.
(Btw, just to share, to keep baby's skin healthy over the long term, it's important to change baby's diaper every 3 hours in the day. If cost is a concern, consider using modern cloth diapers, which can absorb a lot too.)
I'm also trying hard to pump more milk as my baby dont want to latch on. However, recently I dont have anymore milk. Can I take the Motherlove More milk Plus?
I have an unopened bottle of motherlove more milk plus, liquid, for sale at $50. Kindly call me at 96155333. Very good at increasing breastmilk supply!
Motherlove more milk plus and motherlove special blend are good for increasing milk supply. Better than fenugreek, IMO.
The liquid tincture ones are better than capsules as they are easily absorbed. If you compared the ingredients in capsules and liquid, the capsules contains "more unneccesary ingredients". Thus, better to buy liquid. I have unopened bottle of more milk plus and special blend. SMS 96155333 for details.
Before that i able to pump less than 50 ML after i latch my girl. Sometime not even 20 ML, i had try the following matter
- GNC feguneek ( Seem does work for me, as i only take 2 pill each days & Night )
- Pump N latch ( Pump 10 min for both side )
- drink red date tea / milo before i pump/latch & after that also take water.
- Drink soup every meal ( black beans soup / green papaya fish soup / herbal soup with red date,long gan )
- recently i try banana flower Soup which intro by my cousin wife, So far i drink twice.
This few day i can feel my supply had increase bit by bit
From last time less than 50ML till now 90-100ML,
Seem little but to me i feel very happy already.. dont give up..
If you in keen of trying the banana flower soup you can email me. I teach you.
I believe not all mummy can accept the soup..
it take nice & is milky colour.
Carry baby lots...in a sling or carrier. Somehow this has a hormonal affect and helps milk production. Plus feed feed feed.
been taking tons of fenugreek to boost my supply, until i found lactation cookies from Milk Of Love | It's all about Breastmilk. very delicious n they help. now i've stopped eating fenugreek n changed my pack to monthly oack from them. you can try them out.
