Set off to a great spurt…er… start!

After the baby arrives, the most oft asked question is ‘how’s the milk coming?’ Firstly, it takes roughly 2 days to come in and secondly most of us city girls did not grow up surrounded by maternal forces where breast feeding and infant nurturing are second nature. We have probably never seen how it is done. It is not as easy as is made out to be. So take a chill pill and relax. Information overload in from one ear – out the other.

Much to my own surprise, I tried some traditional remedies that aid lactation:

Meethi ladoos – find a Maharashtrian friend and ask her mother to make some.

    I’ve heard that eating a lot of garlic helps too – makes the milk taste sweeter, hence baby drinks more which increases the flow. Garlic and methi – hmm – ensures no one’s coming near you for a while!
