Can Milk Be Produced Again After It Has Been Dry For Almost 2 Months?
Greetings … I want to ask … my child is 4.5 months … first I am still breastfeeding my child until the age of 3 months … but my milk is not much, so I add formula milk too. Then I take binary pills with the aim that my milk can be a lot, but my milk is even dry at all and my ankle is getting lazy to drink milk … My question is, can my milk be produced again after it has been dry for almost 2 months … ????
Good afternoon, thank you for asking at HealthReplies.com. Breast milk that does not come out can come back out or not, depending on what conditions cause the milk to dry first. If your milk is dry because there is indeed lack of stimulation, an unhealthy lifestyle, malnutrition or something like that, it should be able to come back by dealing with the problem. But if your milk is lacking because you have a hormone abnormality, an abnormality in the breast milk glands or other disorders, maybe you should think about other sources of nutrition.
However, because it is difficult to know this without a direct examination, we advise you to check with your obstetrician or lactation doctor to ascertain what problems actually caused you to experience this. If it can still be sought, your doctor will help prescribe medication, and help you regulate your lifestyle that can help increase milk production.
If it really can't be stimulated anymore, your doctor will help determine the right nutrition to give to your baby, whether it's milk first, or if he is underweight can be given a special formula to restore his weight, how to feed, and when solid food can be given to him. Meanwhile, to increase breast milk, try pumping your breast milk, stay away from cigarettes, maintain ideal body weight, fulfill your nutrition, consume food to increase breast milk, manage stress well, and share with other nursing mothers. So, hopefully answering your question.
