Hai Lingg Lingg .. Thank you for the question.
The process of exclusively breastfeeding a child is something that is highly desired by a mother. However, there are some situations where breastfeeding cannot be maximized due to low milk production. Decreased milk production can occur due to the psychological influence of the mother, the use of contraceptives containing estrogen, the mother often gives pacifiers or pacifiers to the child, or because of the presence of hypothyroidism / low thyroid hormone levels.
However, there is an opportunity for the mother to return to breastfeeding the child after stalling, which is also called relactation. Some ways that can be done are:
Routinely attach the mother's nipples to the child's mouth
Make skin and skin contact between mother and child
Apply breast milk to the mother's nipples
Try expressing milk with a pump or by hand to stimulate the release of milk
Consumption of foods that stimulate breast milk
If the above methods have not produced results, you can also consult a pediatrician. So the doctor can help the mother to the relactation process and also at the same time assess the child's nutrition.
