Hello Fanny, Thank you for the question.


Breast milk production may decrease if you take allergy medicine or cold medicine. In addition, the physical condition of a nursing mother's body can also affect the amount of breast milk. There are several ways you can take care of your milk production:

You can continue to empty your breasts more frequently to keep stimulating milk production
You can also consume foods that increase milk production

manage stress well because high stress levels can also affect milk production

If indeed your milk production is very much reduced, you can combine it with formula feeding. Feeding a baby formula may run into trouble because you usually have to experiment with several different formulas until the baby finds a taste that you like. In addition, babies usually refuse to drink formula milk if the bottle nipple does not match the size of their mouth. Try to choose a bottle nipple that resembles your nipple and fits the size of the baby's mouth. Before giving formula milk you should warm the milk but not too hot.


You can try several brands of formula milk for your baby because usually babies will choose which one they prefer. Please also try to pay attention to the size of the bottle nipple. Replace with a new teat if it is damaged or hard.


If the above efforts don't work, don't hesitate to consult your pediatrician.
