The first touch of love, breastfeeding. It is the best way to bond and share the love between a mother and a child. Studies claim that a baby’s instinct toward the mother is through the smell of the breast milk, therefore, having a steady flow of breast milk is not just important to feed your new-born but for attachment too.

Breastfeeding is a natural process, but sometimes new mothers face difficulties with it. Homeopathy can help solve common breastfeeding problems. How? Let’s find out.

Homeopathic Approach for Breast Feeding Problems

1.    Cracked nipples

Cracked nipples can be an obstacle for a hungry baby.

Homeopathic medicines:

  • Nitricum acidum – for treating bleeding and painful cracks.
  • Graphites –for treating itchy cracks with discharge.

2.    Low milk supply

Homeopathic medicines:

  • Ricinus communis 6C can help you increase milk secretion.

3.    Oversupply

Oversupply of milk can choke the baby.

Homeopathic medicines:

  • Calcarea carbonica30C helps in reducing milk supply.

4.    Mastitis

Mastitis is a condition where the breasts are infected by bacteria. The symptoms are fever and pain in the breasts.

5.    Painful Breasts/ Clogged Ducts
