Firstly don't feel guilty. I know as a mom how u ar thinking,mine was also same condition but with different circumstances, I also couldn't feed my baby.
You are doing your best.
It is a phase and will pass off.
For immunity, now u can not give anything other than formula milk , after your baby turn six months u can give him immunity boosting food.
There are many baby who can't have bm, but they are doing fine, but thing is that, u have to be strong and work little harder towards your child diet.
Consult your doctor ,there are many lactation medicine available.
Thanks Deepika for your kind words.Will consult for sure..is Lactare tablet good and has good results??
Can't say, every Dr. Prescribe different medicine, so it better to consult Dr.
Ok .. thank you Deepika
Deepika is right👍👌
Take Lactare-, two tablets after food for three times a day.
Try Galact granules with milk
Try this too. Boil some 8-10 garlic cloves in milk and have it before ur feed.
Drink more water and liquid food.
@shalini are these safe what you wrote? Can I have that?
U can take jeera powder 1 spoon at night with milk ..it will enchance bm suply..drink lots of water..milk..eat oats..daliya..liquids
@poulomi If you have any doubt consult your physician. But for sure, u can take garlic and oatmeal.
Galact and lactare- are working for me 🙂
Don't feel guilty, as a mother i knm ur condition. U don't hve enough milk supply ur giving fm Nothing wrong in tat.
Janu even I face the problem wid my 23 days old daughter because of low supply of milk I have to give her formula milk.. Even I take good diet oats, Dalia, Moong dal, milk, lactaways power,garlic,milk lods of water, jeera water & all those things which helps in increasing supply but result is same..
I want to know from u how much formula milk u give to your baby I mean how much quantity of formula milk & at what interval..
@janu I faced the same problem with my elder son. Don't feel guilty. If u cannot comfort baby with ur milk, give formula. Nothing s wrong in that. U can start giving ur child, solid foods early with ur doctor's consent. Just for few months. Don't worry.
@ shalini.. How much formula shud be given to 23 days old child & at what interval.. Plz suggest
@akasha check ur formula tin/ carton.
And u can adjust with ur baby's need.
Hi Akasha, you can refer the formula milk tin.I use similac, it is mentioned as 120ml 6-7(4 hrs gap) times feeding per day. But my baby wets very often and he feels hungry before 4 hrs gap sometimes. So I give him based on his demand.
Maximum interval time s 2 to 3hr. U can give 120ml to 150ml. It depends on Baby
Use lactare capsules.... N feed him frequently... I used it n found the result....u vl also get....gud luck
Hi Sadhana, what is the dosage u took?
Don't feel guilty we are just not fortunate to feed our babies our milk.I too felt the same initially but later I knew till the time I won't get out of this guilt I can't take care of my baby properly.We all know breastfeeding is very important for baby but if due to some reason we cannot we don't need to be guilty for that just go on with formula its the second best option available for our babies.Yes for immunity you can start healthy diet after six months.Just enjoy motherhood :) ur baby is too young as of now but when he or she will start smiling while looking at ur face u will know u r doing your job better.
Very well said Deepika....
I m also facing the same problem but little bit different my bm quantity is good but my baby is not taking so I hv to do pump 😣
I am also facing the same problem.. I don't have enough bm.. So had to depend on fm. First he used to drink whatever bm he used to get, but now he is just preferring fm. I keep searching for the foods that may increase my bm but nothing works. I feel very guilty and am getting depressed thinking about the immunity power of my baby.
Soak 2tbsp jeera in 2-3 glass of water over night and drink that water next day it vl surely increase BM. I was taking and it worked well.
Hi dear mommy..
I don't think that your breast supply is low. Babies have to suck well to come milk out. Some babies are lazy to suck. All you have to do is before feed your baby massage your breast well. Then feed ur baby.
If it doesnt work then you pump ur milk and feed. Atleast u try to feed him 3 months. Give formula too. Don't take tension. It will be impact than everything. Feed ur baby as much as you can it is the only way to increase your breast milk supply.
I can understand this situation cuz i faced the same when my baby was 3months.
Hi... Even m facng same prblm.. Bt evrytime when baby is hungry i give her breastmilk if she seems satisfied then its gud if not then only i give her formula milk.. Sometimes shes satisfied nd sometimes not.. So i had to start formula.. M using enfamil stage 1... My pediatrician said this is close to mothers milk so m using d same.. Nd happy with formula milk.. U also offer ur baby ur milk first then formula....
I think every 4th mother face this common problem....I was faced also...and I was depressed....that time I was think that it is happened only with me...I was so depressed...but I request u dear first don't get panic b,coz if u feel not good then BM is not increase.. It is the major reason to decrease of bm...be happy...second when ur baby is hungry go for FM...and when he is not hungry then u should try to give ur bm...let the baby suck ur Breast...sucking is the other reason to increase BM..and third is remember that after 5 month ur baby will grow up and then give many solids for immunity....
Enjoy ur parenting....bcoz these days never comes again... Today when I remember my days I think I was fool...i just waist those time...thats y i want to say....dont repeat my mistake... My elder son is 5 years old...and he is healthy....
Hi.... I know how it hurts when we know we are unable to give sufficient bm to our babies. I had the same issue . I tried Galact granuals ( 1 tbs with warm milk twice a day after food)and garlic milk in afternoon now my baby is happy. Come out of the guilt and be happy this will also improve ur milk production.
Am also used lactare tab!! U wil get gud result!! Then drink garlic milk in empty stomach!!! Drink plenty of water!!! 3 to 4 litrs!!
Hi me too had same issue nd ma baby s 10 month old till this time I'm not able to get out of this guilt. I feel I'm a cursed mother due to this I care ma baby so much to keep him healthy nd active. But people's surrounding me laughs at me for this my in-laws still hurting me by comparing me with ma cousin who s blessed with a lot of bm I pray to God that don't make moms without bm plzzzzzzz
Hi me too have that same problem.somewhere I studied that people having pcos,thyroid,diabetes problem will have low milk supply or over milk supply or no supply at all. I have pcos so only I couldn't give bm for my baby.
Hi my condition is different even though i m having enough bm ...as my bm didnt suit her bcoz i could see continuous motions ....doc told me to switch on to fm ...as she is habituated to bm she is nt taking fm...what should i do...i m feelng bad dat my milk din suit her..
How long does continous motion occurs
From 10days after birth
I think baby is lactose intolerant. Does the same happens with fm
Do u knw abt dexolac
I'm using similac advance but ma frnd used dexolac her baby has no problm so far
Bcoz i m having dexolac ...so can u tell me weather dexolac is also a free lactose powder
Hi Mallika,did Ur doc gave any medication for motions?
If s ,after medication also same happen again?
If no y u think of about any medication for motions ,y doc concluded it's alactose intolerance.,?
Doc have given medicine bt couldnt see any result....motion is lyk continuous watery discharge ...
Please check the contents of dexolac it should be on the backside. If lactose s there it should be there. U can check with a lactation consultant and modify ur diet which would help a lot
Hi Mallika,check this
. A watery stool might not always mean diarrhoea, a newborn baby who is exclusively breastfed might pass stools as frequently as 15 times a day or once in 3 or 4 days. And both these situations are normal,’ says Dr Raju Khubchandani, consultant paediatrician Jaslok Hospital, Mumbai further explaining that, If your baby is feeding well, looking healthy, is playful and gains weight consistently, then watery loose motions shouldn’t pose a problem for your baby.’ Many mothers nurse a misconception that breastfeeding might lead to diarrhoea and give up breastfeeding too soon.
Take second opinion before going to formula...
My PED suggested to take sea food try Tis out janu
It's better to consult a gynaec. They will prefer you medicine.
I have the same problem.
First I had lactonic granules. 1-0-1. No effect
Second lactare tablet 1-0-1 for 1 week. No use
Now I am having perinorm 1-0-1 for 1 week.
My doctor told me that if it is not effecting, then my body character is like that.
Hi friends ..I have 2 kids 1st one s 3 years n 2nd boy he s 5 month. .For both I have less bm . Some time I feel I should nt have started bm only. .because once you start wit bm when baby is born den it's very difficult to adjust them to bottle to give fm..really I have faced a lot..Everyday n night is sleep deprived even nw ..jus nw I have started wit semi solid food to my baby so little I'm relaxed ..
I m also taking lactare capsules result is good 2 tab in the morning 2 in the evening. Imy baby is 1 month 20 days old
Lactonic granules works
Take with milk 2tsp twice a day.
I have enough BM but my baby is not sucking breasts. I am also depressed. Even i have enough milk she s not sucking. I have to pump my milk every time.
First of all don't feel guilty...bcz stress too cause low supply. If u dont have enough bm to satisfy ur baby go with fm nothing wrong in that. But at times when baby is not that much hungry make her sucking bm even a drop is that much nutritious which provides her immunity. I'm also a mom with low supply. Once ur baby able to eat solids go with immunity boostng foods. Enjoy motherhood
Don't feel guilty dear.m also going through same thing most important is to feed your baby it doesn't matter whether it is bm or fm.

Fenu greek powder and garlic milk has more effect
Take lactare capsules its too good i was also facing same problems
Lactare tab is good
Take 2 tspoon satavri powder with milk n chew dry coconut piece as u can..it helps immediately to increase bm
Boil milk with sabodana n have dat it will increase BM. No need to feel guilty about it.
I have same issue... When I eat stuff like bajra n all that helps increase bm... My baby passes lot of motion... Be happy while feeding it helps....n I tried lactare as well for few days it helps but my doc stopped after sometime.... medicine is not long term solution...have shatavari x with milk the a day.....
Have lactaways granuals 2spoon powder with milk, daily 2 times. Really it works. Surely it'll improve your bm & add drumstick leaves in your diet it also helps to increase the flow
Now m facing the same problem and am giving farex stage one as he is not satisfied with bm fully
Hi dear don't worry my baby is also in the same condition but keep on giving bm and the main thing let him suck more he suck he may get some sort of bm don't get panic though u r giving him bm there will be immunity power though the baby is getting some bm very day eat gd gd and plenty of water..... Important thing now a days every mom facing the same problem they proced with bm and formula
My doctor suggested me hi-lacta for this purpose.try that
Try brest pump.Pumping after every feed.It might increase supply
@shalini....garlic boiled with milk???
Am also meet this situation so don't feel .... U can gv fm it can't pblm mostly ladies have no breastfeeding fully so no guilty feeling...... U try to feed bm
Thr is no need to feel guilty...every baby is different... Feeding frm bottle is easy fr babies as they dont have to much effort..n sucking frm breast demands effort... So babies dnt suck smtyms
My paed had said to keep on trying even if the baby is crying
Try it...at least fr abt 15 mins even if he cries
Else give bottle
Hi.. you can also take shatavari granules with milk. Drink milk atleast 3 times a day.
Good 🌃 and sweet potato fries your
