Kind of...: The absolute best way to make milk is to breastfeed exclusively! As a doctor AND a mom, I can tell you that breastfeeding is supply and demand. Some days you will feel like you breastfeed nonstop, then others it will be sporadic. Lots of fluids will help keep you hydrated to allow your body to keep producing, so water is a must! Drinking milk will not help you make more milk, breastfeeding will! ...Read more

The major problem is that supplementation will decrease your supply of breast milk which is the reason many mother consider doing this. The solution to insufficient supply is to increase breast feeding not decrease it. Even today's formula is not as good as breast milk. ...Read more

Chill out!: Milk production is supply and demand, so the less demand you put on it, the less you will make. Just like when you started it took a couple of days to come in, it's going to take a couple of days to ease away. Decreasing the blood flow with cold packs, cold towels, tight bras or even tight ace banage wraps will all help, but you also have to give it some time. Take pain med if it helps. ...Read more
