How To Produce More Breast Milk

Formula is expensive, and breastfeeding is becoming increasingly more popular. There are many ways in which you can increase the amount of breast milk you produce, and this video will inform you of the easy, safe, affordable and ideal ways to do so.

Breast milk, the most nutritious food that you can give your baby, comes on supply and demand. There are a lot of hormones involved in this process, the main two being prolactin and oxytocin.

Prolactin also rises after the onset of sleep, so night feeds are really, really important to help with your supply. Oxytocin is what lets the bit milk flow, and again, these hormones are all linked together with all the other hormones of the body. The more relaxed you are, the easier it is for these hormones to work.

Breast massage can help to stimulate your milk production and your milk flow especially in the early days when you've got the colostrum which is the precursor to breast milk.
