breast milk

Hi mummies, anything to start eating before delivery that could help to increase breast milk? Gave birth to my first LO 2 years ago but not much breast milk. Was hoping this round, can hv more breast milk. Thanks in advance!

Nothing before delivery, but must drink lots of water and latch on demand. It can be tempting be not pump/latch as you will be exhausted but it’s crucial to stimulate early and often. Every 2-3 hrs at least. Try to latch first and save the bottle, nipple confusion is really hard to overcome. Good luck on your breastfeeding journey.

I’m an oversupply mum. Before delivery I didn’t eat anything special. After delivery I had papaya fish soup, drank more water and had fenugreek tea. And latch on demand though it can be super tiring. Good luck!

I had lots of Milo during pregnancy lots of fish and soup stuff I start to have leaking at 5 months pregnancy. and I'm a super over supply mum. I guess these stuff contribute to me being over supply

I think the closest would be maternal milk?

Oats, Greek Yogurt, Milk, Water, Papaya

I think drinking maternal milk helps
