The following are some methods to increase breast milk:

1.Increase nursing frequency: By increasing the frequency of nursing, the breasts are stimulated to produce more milk through the milk reflex.

2.Correct nursing posture: Use the correct nursing posture to ensure that the baby sucks on the nipple in a way that fully stimulates the areola, thereby producing more milk.

3.Massage the breasts: Massaging the breasts stimulates the mammary glands to produce more milk.

4.Dietary adjustments: Drinking plenty of water can increase milk production. The mother needs to supplement their diet with more protein and moisture, and consume fish soup, bone broth, etc., to obtain nutrition for the breast milk, so that the baby can grow better.

5.Maintain a pleasant mood: A pleasant emotional state can prevent postpartum depression and increase milk production.

6.Adequate rest and sleep: Maintaining adequate rest and sleep helps to promote milk production.

7.Avoid smoking and drinking: Smoking and drinking can affect milk production, so the mother should avoid smoking and drinking as much as possible.

8.Exercise appropriately: Appropriate exercise helps to promote milk production, but excessive exercise should be avoided.

9.Adopt correct posture for sitting and sleeping: Correct posture for sitting and sleeping can prevent the breasts from being compressed and help with milk production.

These methods can help mothers increase their milk production, but it should be noted that each mother's situation is different, so these methods may need to be adjusted according to individual needs. If the mother still cannot meet the baby's needs, they may need to seek advice from a doctor or lactation consultant.
