How Can I increase breast milk?
Answer: It completely depends on your health and needs. You can do the following things to increase and boost breast milk-
- Firstly and most important, Breast-feed the baby as much as possible. If you may then nurse a few other babies as well. The main aim is to empty your boobs as much as possible.
- Secondly, Stop drinking alcohol and stop smoking. Don't go for any kind of breast enhancement surgeries. Just keep them natural.
- Thirdly, Ask your husband or boyfriend to drink as much as possible. They won't say you "No" for it ;). Breast milk is easy to digest and of course good for health. If you have other sex partners ask them the same. Most men can not resist if you offer them breast milk and that will not only increase production but also increase your breast size. Which means you may store much more.
- And Fourth, Even after your baby stops drinking if you keep pumping and make your partners drink, then your breast will keep lactating. It’s always helpful to keep your breast working.
