You have done a really great job putting all these things together.
I have added below some of the things that have worked for me.
My DD is 10 months old and I have been breast feeding her.I started her on solids when she was 5 months old but my pediatrician still always insists that breast milk is her primary source of nutrients. That is why I am always concerned that my body should keep producing enough milk for her.
My menstrual cycle started when she was about 6 months and there was a decrease in my breast milk production. She was crying due to hunger and it was a difficult time for both of us. This is what my mother asked me to do and it helped. I ate some garlic boiled/cooked in milk.Drank the milk as well.also drank a full cup of milk. I gave the baby to my mother to take care and I slept for an hour. When I woke up my breast was full. Garlic and milk is a sure solution. Relaxing and getting some sleep generates milk in the body.
These are the other things that I do regularly to ensure that there is enough milk for my baby.
1. Eat a spoon of soaked methi(fenugreek) seeds about 3 times a day. Fenugreek is very good for milk production.
2. Drink a glass of milk atleast twice a day.
3. Have a porridge of sabudana(sago seeds) once a day.Sago seeds are very good for milk production.
3. Eat regularly. Never skip a meal. When the mother eats food it is digested and there is milk for the baby in 2 hours.
I hope this information proves to be useful to other mothers like me.
All the best to you and your baby. Enjoy the great happiness that god has given you.
