Decreased lactation: what to do?

During breastfeeding, it's common to experience a drop in lactation, but don't worry, it is often temporary.

  • Most moms produce enough milk to feed their babies, but if you do notice a drop, there are ways to encourage lactation.
  • Stimulate your breasts by having your baby feed very regularly, even outside of mealtime.
  • Drink plenty of water and get enough to eat.
  • Take the time to rest - some lactation decreases are due to fatigue or stress.
  • In any case, don't hesitate to ask your doctor for advice.
