Lactogen feeds chart
I am not able to lactate enuff so my baby from birth was put on lactogen 1.however I noticed her intake is more than what is advised on the lactogen tin's feed chart for infant age. Currently my baby is 3weeks old the chart says 4scoops per feed n not more than 5feeds in a day. For My baby 5 feeds aren't enough in a day n she can go on to 6 or 7 feeds Is it safe to exceed nbr of feeds as mentioned on the feed chart... She screams for her feeds and I'm helpless as not getting more than 25ml of breast milk in a day ... So unable to give her my milk which will satisfy her hunger. Please help me understand if giving more than the mentioned feeds of lactogen is safe..Thank you.

Hi dear mother, you may feed her on demand as much as the baby wants. There is no harm. only follow the proper concentration as mentioned on tin. Hope this will help you
Next Steps
please try drinking atkeast 2-3 L of water per day, and hold the baby to Breast every 2-3 hours before her normal feed time. let baby suckle on breast, do not think about low milk supply. over a period of time milk supply will definitely increase.
