Why isn't one of my breasts producing enough milk? And my left side is bigger than the other one! Please, is it normal?

Kindly ensure you breastfeed with both breasts. The more the baby sucks a breast, the more breast milk that will be produced from the breast. Ensure the baby is properly latched on. You might need to allow the baby suck from the other breast more to make it equally produce more milk.

She may have what we call Gastroesophageal reflux. Just a jargon that says food return from the stomach to the oesophagus after feed instead of staying down. For such babies, you need to keep them upright for up to 30 minutes or more after each feed...so it stays down. You can keep them in the car seat put in upright position if you are too tired or busy to carry them that long...others can help too.....sometimes that may not work and .... if it not allowing baby to gain weight....please see your paediatricians for further management at that point
My son 1year and 3 months and I want to wean him. How do I go about it cos sometimes he refuses to take the breastmilk?
You have to start withdrawing breastmilk bit by bit. Babies who are weaned naturally usually stop breastfeeding completely sometime between 2 and 4 years of age. Planned weaning or “mother-led weaning” happens when mothers decide to start the weaning process. A “partial wean” means substituting one or more feedings with a cup or bottle and breastfeeding at other times.

You should introduce the use of feeding with plate, cup and spoon. Plates and cups are easier to clean and has no hiding place for germs. Our professionals discourage the use of bottle feeding due to challenges with cleaning especially the teat and despite sterilisation, bacteria can still hide in the bottle leading to infection.

Pls mums and doc in the house, is't possible to conceive while breast milk is still coming out from one's breast,
Your best chance of conceiving while breastfeeding is to have regular, unprotected sex. Breastfeeding stimulates a hormone called prolactin, sometimes called the milk hormone. High levels of prolactin stop you from ovulating.

lactation is all about demand and supply; the more you put your baby to breast, the more milk you produce. A good way of producing more is also expressing your breast milk. by expressing, you are inadvertently signalling to your body to produce more. Eating well and resting well also contribute to a good milk supply. Get someone to attend to baby while you catch a good nap. Wish you all the best.

My daughter is 5months and she changes a very wet diaper once a day. Please, does that mean she's not getting enough breast milk?...
Some diapers are hyper dry. Ensure that your baby is well fed. Babies normally pass urine within 30minutes of adequate breastfeeding or liquid intake . You may need to remove the diaper and see the stream. You can also take the baby for proper examination and appropriate decision .

Tiger juice. Mixture of soyabeans, dates,crayfish, groundnut(optional). These produce enough breast milk.
