 How the Lactating Mothers can improve their breast milk?

▪Breast feeds should be offered quite often to their babies at regular time intervals during the whole 24 hours ; on an average of 8 to 12 times a day, so that the hormones that triggers the mother’s milk are released in sufficient quantities in their blood stream.
