Can I get some recommendations for foods or supplements I can take to increase my milk supply?

    Oats worked for me. Oatmeal, oat cookies, etc. However the only thing really proven to work at increasing supply is increasing “need”. So if you are nursing baby as often as possible, try pumping between. This tells your body to produce more

    I took fenugreek and Mothers milk tea and I noticed a rapid increase in my milk supply within a day or two.

    Drink lots and lots of water. That’s the main ingredient that will help your supply. Also pumping in between feeds.

    Our doc recommended drinking your weight number in ounces of water every day. We are also increasing fresh fruit on a daily basis, chia seed pudding, eggs (hard boiled make it easy to store for a few days), and protein rich foods like chicken, fish, and red meat.

    Oats! (Oatmeal or Cheerios), coconut, pecans if you’re able, dried apricots, sweet potatoes, quinoa. A lot of the spices in Indian food are also help produce more milk, of which Fenugreek is one. But if you’re diabetic or prediabetic then I would skip Fenugreek pills. And of course drinking lots of water! Pumping once baby claims to be done nursing helps increase supply but isn’t always feasible.
