1. Babies are always good at giving hints: Try to listen to your baby’s cue. They are very good at giving signals by touching your nipples or putting their hands in your mouth. So, always keep looking for these signals so that you can know that the baby is hungry.

2. So, the second way is skin to skin: Newborns instinctively have a heightened sense of smell so placing your baby’s skin to skin helps him or her seek out the nipples to begin breastfeeding.

3. Be high on liquid: As a mother, drink the maximum liquid and stay well hydrated so that it gets easier for your body to make more milk. Drink maximum water.
