How to increase breast milk
 

Keeping your breast milk supply at top levels can be a challenge, but by adding certain foods to your diet, you can help improve your supply.
 
 

Diet

Dark leafy greens, asparagus, carrots and apricots are rich in phytoestrogens, which means they may help promote lactation. Eating a diet full of essential fatty acids, like omega-3, may also increase your breast milk supply, while providing a much more nutrient rich milk for your baby.
 
 

Feed, Feed & Feed Some More

The goal is to feed the baby as often as it wants to and try to completely drain your breast when you do.
 
 

Pump When away From the Baby

It is common for your milk supply to decrease if you you are away from you baby for long periods of time such as going back to work. To prevent this pump regularly when at work and try to squeeze in a feeding before you go to work and at least one throughout the night.
