    Not producing enough breastmilk


    Hi there!

    I want to know how will I increase the flow of my milk? I am currently using Organic Mother's Milk as I have discovered from previous posts, but I still feel its the same.

    From the start I fed him with EBF and Formula, the first 3mos flow of my milk was alot.

    However, starting from 4mos up to now 6mos the flow of my milk is decreasing. Before, I can make 3bottles of 8oz per day, now only 2oz per day!

    HELP!

    First things first. Are you still feeding fromt he breast? If so, around 4-6 months your supply regulates, so you won't be making more than you are demanding from your body. The leaking should stop and this is normal. If you aren't feeding directly there are still a lot of options, but a good place to start is kellymom. Here's a good article:
