Please my sister's baby is not getting enough breast milk due to the mother's flat nipples. The baby cannot suck her breast, the baby is always crying because of inadequate breast milk, though they have been to the hospital and she's been told to pump it and give the baby but it's still not enough. Please can she give her baby milk and which baby milk will suitable for her. The baby is just 3weeks old
We always advocate exclusive breastfeeding in the first 6 months. We also know it can be difficult to breast feed with a flat nipple.
But as it is now, your sister is already tensed as a result of the difficulty to breastfeed.
Let her know that emotion and state of mind can affect milk production. How often she eats and relax matters too. She should check all these and make them balanced. Definitely she will produce more milk for the baby. She should take plenty fluids like water, pap e.t.c and can also put baby to breast often, the suckling reflex will induce milk production.
