I tried brown rice, yam, avocado milkshake, ikan bilis, salmon, Korean rice drink, milo with oats, pulut hitam, 3 glasses of milk a day. It doesn't boost a lot but it's about 20-30ml more. Hope one of them can help you!

I drink Ovaltine, consume dates and lactitious mom's super pumping brownies. They work for me.

I didn't take any boosters but I used to drink a lot of water and fruit juices and latch the baby to the breast quite often.

I nursed my firstborn throughout pregnancy and no booster worked, unfortunately. After about 20+weeks, my milk supply dipped quite drastically and lo eventually stopped latching until almost the end of 3rd trimester.

For me, I definitely need to stay hydrated to be able to have good supply. My boosters include durian, tempoyak (not kidding), Nutrisoy with Almond, salmon (sashimi or cooked), and home made lactation cookies with brewer's yeast. Longan and red date and black date tea also boosts my supply, though I think it's the kurma that does the boosting more than anything. I tried taking fenugreek but it just makes me smell like curry and gives the little one gas. I have oatmeal and milo in the morning too. I guess you just have to find what works for you.

For no1, I exclusive pump, so the Milk booster work well. I took fenugreeks pill. You need to drink lots of water and eat well and pump often to see the supplies. No2, i latch most of the times, milk booster don't really work, and the best booster is his latching. Some milk booster are : Fenugreek pills Oats Chia seeds Milk booster cookies or brownies (because it's mix with lots of milk booster ingredients like oats, chia seed, fenugreek powder, dark chocolate, etc.) Dark chocolate Green papaya fish soup Oats milk, etc. Anyway, most important eat well, after breastfeeding, tend to be hungry, eat something again. Eat well give baby better milk with lots of nutrients too.

It's different for every woman. Salmon worked wonders for one of my friends. It was milo and oats for another one.

It varies for different people. What works for me may not work for you. Oats and chia seeds work for me though. Usually will take oatmeal with frisomum for breakfast and in between meals if hungry. Chia seed is to make it as drink. You can try lactation cookies available at kiddy palace too. Taste wise is quite nice.
