My wife gave birth 2 days ago and she cannot breast feed at the moment. What could we do to increase productivity and also feed the newborn? F, 32

Inducing milk. You can try breast pump to induce more production. In addition a 7 day course of metaclompramide should also increase production.
Breast pump and form. If your wife is unable to nurse right now, it is very important that she use a breast pump as often as the baby eats, about every 2-3 hours around the clock. This will ensure that the milk supply will come in. The baby, in the meantime, should be fed infant formula, usually starting with a cow's milk based formula. Baby should be fed every 2-3 hours by bottle, volume depends on baby's weight.
