Question
Dear Ruth Kraft,

my wife recently birth a baby (boy) like one half month ago...After a delivery she got effected jaundice while taking treatment infection effected to liver and kidney so she again continued urology treatment after jaundice, With in these days baby feed given through milk powders. Now she cured by above two problems but when she trying give feed from breast milk is not happing, and she trying by giving through pumping by suggestion by the gynaecology specialist . Any other way  suggest me to get her milk in breast.

Answer
I am not sure what herbs you have available in India. Fenugreek is one that will often help moms increase supply. She needs to nurse as often as possible and pump every 2 hours for 15 minutes  to get milk to come in more.   the more the breasts are stimulated to make milk the more milk she will make :)
