What should a mother not producing enough breast milk do to improve the situation?

1.Start breast feeding as early as possible: If possible, start breast feeding on the delivery table. This practice can promote milk secretion, help womb contractions, and facilitate placental discharge.
2.Make sure that the baby sucks the nipple in a "right" posture.
3.Do breast feeding at any time: Frequent postpartum sucking helps the mother to produce milk earlier than normal and avoid breast swelling. Sucking at night can strengthen the mechanism of lactation to produce more milk.
4.Keep the baby beside you 24 hours a day: Breast feed the baby according to his/her needs. If the baby shows a sucking reaction, breast feed him/her right away.
5.Feed the baby with pure breast milk only: Do not add glucose water, milk or water. Other foods will lessen the baby’s demand on breast milk, thus inhibiting you from producing breast milk.
