    priya123, yes. The horns neeed not fit correctly for everyone and you may need to go one size up or down. If you have a medela breastpump their webpage tells you how to find the correct fit for you.

    Drumsticks, drumstick leaves(cooked) and sesame seed laddos or sesame seeds in any form will help in increasing milk production

    Sree..........

    1)Raw Papaya when boiled is a good solution with Cumins for better milk production.
    2)Hot Milk with Mother's Horlicks is also good.
    3)Your daughter has to suck for milk. Then only it will be produced.

    Dont work, be cool and follow the suggestions of our friends. God Bless :)

    Hi

    I had the same problem when i gave birth to my baby...you can drink Mothers Horlicks and it really helped me a lot..if you are a non-vegetarian then you can eat Scrambled Shark Fry..it is very much good and nutritious to get healthy lacts for your kid..

    Garlic plays a big role in the secretion of milk. If you are a NV eat chicken(country) and Biriyani becos spices in that helps for secretion(one of my Muslim friends told me).
