Hi Shashi,

 

Some recommended foods that can increase your breast milk supply are:

 

  • Fenugreek seeds
  • Fennel seeds
  • Garlic
  • Green leafy vegetables
  • Cumin
  • Sesame seeds
  • Basil
  • Oatmeal
  • Carrots
  • Barley and other whole grains
  • Asparagus
  • Salmon
  • Papaya
  • Apricots
  • Chickpeas
  • Brewer’s yeast

 

It is also important to stay away from certain foods such as alcohol, sage, peppermint parsley, chasteberries etc.
