Yes, this is safe as: a supplement. To increase your milk production, make sure you are drinking plenty of fluids,eating well and getting rest. Keep up with the nursing; if you drop nursing time, your milk supply will diminish even further. Make sure you're not taking over-the-counter medications that might contribute to this. Please speak to your obstetrician and your baby's pediatrician for more help.

Formula is safe: if you prepare with safe water and use refrigeration. To increase your breast milk, breast feed or pump and express milk every 2-3 hours. Make sure you are drinking enough fluids and nutrition and rest, as your body needs to take care of you before using extra fluids and calories to produce milk. Sometimes the baby is too weak to breast feed well and needs the extra calories to get stronger.
