I am having a 1-month-old baby. I am giving breast milk and formula milk to my baby due to insufficient breast milk. However, my breast milk was not too low. I used to provide formula feed for one or two feeds. Before three days back, I was sick, and so I could not breastfeed my baby for one day. After recovery, my breast milk has been dropped drastically and hardly. I was able to pump only 10 ml per feeding which was 100 ml before. Is this because I have not breastfed or pumped milk for one day? I want to recover my milk supply. Kindly advise. Can I take fenugreek supplement? Currently, I am giving formula milk to my baby, and I want to do breastfeeding. I am taking Razo D and Histac 180 for acidity and Livogen before breakfast and Shelcal in the afternoon.
