A lot of mothers want to increase their breast milk supply as they feel they are not producing enough for their baby’s requirements. This is more of a silent worry.
While nursing, the biggest aspect that should be taken care of is the diet of the mother, as it not only impacts the amount and quality of breast milk produced, but also impacts the post-delivery recovery of the mother.
