I am a 30 year old woman. I have a three months old baby. I am giving formula milk for my baby from the first month, because from the beginning I did not have adequate milk secretion. Also, I am breastfeeding three to four times a day in between. As I had cold and light fever I stopped breastfeeding for two days thinking it will also affect my baby. After that my milk secretion has almost stopped. Even my baby is also not sucking from me. Now, I have recovered from the flu, but still I did not get back to my normal secretion. Not even 10 mL of milk is getting secreted. I have tried eating fenugreek, garlic, oats meal and lots of water. But, nothing has worked. I am really stressed because of this. I am not even able to breastfeed my baby for three months. I am worried. Please help me and advise accordingly. Thank you.
