Importance of fenugreek in boosting lactation after birth
For women who have recently delivered, I would suggest a few things that will work:
1. Drink a large glass of water every time you feed and also eat something before or during feeds. Some women even eat at night since that gives them strength. Do not worry about the weight since you are breastfeeding and you will not put on much weight with this. Rather you will lose with each feed. Most stuff is delivering on to the baby.
2. Jeera definitely helps in the milk production and maintain it. (tadka in all veggies and pulses is a good way to get loads of it).
3. Two to three glasses of milk (for calcium).4. I have heard from my friends about the Fenugreek tablets and they swear by it to increase milk production in lactating mothers after birth.
