How To Supply Breastmilk

Hi mummies, I just gave birth to my girl at 38 weeks, and so far my breast isn't making enough milk so far no matter how much massages I do to it, even from the nurses. I really feel bad and sad for my baby girl, that she has to go formula milk for now because of my milk supply. How do you make your breast supply more milk after giving birth or was it normal to have not enough supply after give birth? I truly feel bad for my girl tho. ?

Same for my case too. Baby boy came out at week 38 n I cried when doctor said baby is dehydrated. So he is on formula milk. Now he's a week old and I only can pump enough for one feed. No choice had to top up with formula milk. Dont give up ok mommy. Take supplements. Eat well. Be optimistic tho it's not as easy as it seems. Regularly pump eventhough very little comes out. You can do it babe.

Thank you so much! I couldn't stress this enough tho. I already tried supplements, meds, lactation drink and cookies but all seemed to not help me at all. 😭
