  • There's nothing you can do before the baby is born. Your milk production is stimulated by the change in hormones created by birth and the suckling of the baby. The best indication of what output you are giving is by the wet and dirty diapers the baby puts out. Check out www.kellymom.com for what to expect with newborns.

    There are ways to increase your milk supply such as eating oatmeal, using fenugreek and Mother's Milk Tea.
