Other than frequent nursing and pumping, a lot of moms rely on lactation-induced foods, also known as galactagogues to boost their supply.

Oh, my goodness. I'm just about to become a mother. What other challenges do you think I'll face? What books would you recommend I read?


Your baby's health and safety are best served by mother's milk. It's also a crucial part of mother-child communication. I respect that, but watching a toddler and an adult can be challenging at times. We don't have enough money to hire a caretaker for a sick buddy of mine. I needed to find a way out because I lacked experience caring for people with disabilities. The information I learned from has aided me in providing better care to my loved one. Everyone, in my opinion, should be able to assist and offer first aid to those with impairments. It may appear difficult, but when a person's life is on the line, it's worth thinking about developing these abilities.

drink lots of water, rest well, pump or nurse frequently, include some galactogogues in your diet (fish soup, oats, red date water etc), fenugreek supplement. these are some of the things I've tried and that have worked well for me. The most important is to keep pumping/nursing regularly! Signals to your body to keep producing milk.
