My breastfeeding journey with baby #3 turned out to be like a roller coaster ride.
After being happy that she didn’t get jaundice like her older siblings, she ended up hospitalised for a few days due to dehydration. Formula supplementation became mandatory until my milk supply was able to catch up with her demand.
At 1 months old things seemed better as her weight gain became steady and I was able to eliminate formula milk completely. But nearing 5 months old, her weight gain slowed down again below her curve, and her paed asked me to start solid early.
Oh my.., what a journey...
What are the things that I tried to increase my milk supply this time around?
Below I listed out 20 things that I did to boost my supply (in no particular order), plus its efficacy score.
