Asked a question 6 months ago

Hi, My baby is 5 months old and exclusively breastfed. I am noticing a drastic dip in supply last 2 weeks. Particularly my left breast is producing very less compared to my right.. when I pump on my left I hardly get 5 ml whereas on my right I get 50ml.. What could be the reason? In the initial days after delivery I had domstal. Will restarting domstal help restore my supply? Pls help.

Where am I?

Include good amount of lactogouges in the diet to improve milk flow

(Gourds, sago, garlic, milk, leafy vegetables) 

Dear Priya

Don't relate the quantity that you see in the breastpump to your milk supply especially if you are pumping once in a while. 

Don't start Domstal on your own. I would recommend you to see a Lactation Consultant at your nearest Cloudnine Hospital to assess your milk supply and decide if Domstal needs to be used
