Breast Milk Going Away

Breast Milk Going Away

All feeding mothers are anxious about their baby’s growth and are concerned whether the baby is getting enough milk. As the baby grows the needs of the baby also increase and the baby needs more to eat. Just breast milk may not be enough for the baby and you need to start feeding the baby other foods too.

When the baby starts eating more solids, the baby's dependency on breast milk decreases. When the baby stops taking breast milk, the milk in the mother’s breast also reduces. It is a cycle of natural events that make the breast milk go away finally. However, if a baby is more dependent on breast milk and does not eat other food like solids, then the breast milk also stays longer with the mother. As long as the baby feeds on the mother’s milk, the breasts will produce milk for the baby.

The breast milk flow and the baby’s dependency or appetite for breast milk is directly proportional to each other. This rule applies when the woman is normal and everything else is normal. Sometimes certain health conditions in a woman may decrease the breast milk production. It could be poor diet, lack of proteins and other health conditions that are stopping her body from producing breast milk. There are some natural and conventional lactating medicines that help promote breast milk. Breast feeding mothers are also advised to eat food that is nutritious and rich in protein. It is good for both mother and the baby to have nutritious food.
