Most important: Make her relax. And on that note try too keep a nosy mom and/or Amah from pressuring her. My wife's Amah was putting pressure on my wife even though she DID produce tons of milk...

How is your wife doing. Eating tofu- or tohwa really helped my wife produce more milk. I think costco sells some kind of "bean" supplements for breast feeding moms. Ask, and the attendant will know what you should get.

There are many dietary changes that are supposed to increase your breast milk. Like mentioned above, I have heard of eating lettuce.

There are perscription medications that can help. Lots of old wives tales. But a real medication is out there. Lots of friends that have usedit. Also...formula is an option. I know there are people that say breast is best...and it is..but there are options for situations that arise...like this. Every situation is different...and take life as it rolls. Ask fornhelp...keep an open and educated mind...and make decisions with the best info you have at the time. If you learn something more...adapt...don't regret..enjoy your babies

Hi, in my case my wife didn't had a lot of milk either and the baby was born 9 1/2 pounds so she tried to breast feed her as much as she could but baby wanted a milk stream, the formula we used worked pretty good, she is always been pretty healthy (even tho we are at the hospital right now just recovering from pneumonia) she is 3 and a half years now.
