    Hey it is not briyani

    use Shark fish (Sura) this will increase the milk

    Garlic is the best.

    Take 3 capsules 3 times a day - Lactare Capsules. (TTK Healthcare) this will increase the milk secretion.

    good luck

    I would say take a professional advise. Doctors will be in a good position to solve your query.

    i would say if you keep encouraging her to nurse on both sides then that side will eventually start making more milk.
    It is fairly common for one breast to make more or less milk than the other or for one to have a stronger letdown.
    and try eating drumstick leaves..its excellent for milk production...

    Hi Vidhya, good you want to continue breast feeding. Each time nurse your DS both breasts, let him suckle even if there is no milk secretion at present. Frequent suckling increases breast milk secretion. Many food items suggested above too helps in increasing milk secretion.

    Since he is 6 months you can start giving him semisolid foods now. There are many threads here about starting semi solids and different type of food etc.
