We blessed with a cute baby boy 15 days before. 3 days after delivery milk was getting in breasts normal way, but on 5th day its stops getting suddenly. We consult with doctor, they have given supplement for baby and said if problem continues feed this only. Please help us we are very much depressed.

    Hi there, the best thing to do is to make an appointment with an International Board Certified Lactation Consultant in your area who will take a full history and be able to make suggestions to get breastfeeding back on track. If you are in UK see Find a Lactation Consultant. If you are elsewhere you can search here. Meanwhile there are many reasons for low milk supply see: Reasons for Low Milk Supply and ways to increase milk supply here: How to Make More Breast Milk. Your IBCLC will help you work out a way forward.
