Lactation is the milk production in women during pregnancy and afterwards. During this period, the baby needs nutrition and exposure to Mom’s milk.
Some women do not have a breastfeeding or lactating period after having their baby. This is common and does not mean that you cannot start your lactation! Most experts recommend that women start their lactation around day 4–5 of their baby’s birth date.
Some reasons that some women do not begin their lactation is because they were pregnant before they started their period, they were prescribed meds for breastfeeding before it was time to start, or they were afraid of how much milk they would be leaking.
This article will talk about ways for a woman who does not want to be pregnant but who wants to start the process of latching on to her infant can do without being pregnant and starting your lactation early in your postpartum recovery.

It is common for people who start menstruating during or after pregnancy to try to get milk by trying to start lactating. You can be like my friend who started by undressing in front of the mirror and then finding a place to sit on the couch with your legs curled up, or you can take one of the more reliable methods listed below.
The first way people can try to produce milk is by undressing in front of the mirror and then trying to sit or sit down on the couch or bed with your legs drawn up with your feet about hip distance from yours. This is called trying on foot and knee range of motion (mo re-knee) before sitting down. This method requires some time and effort, but it can be worth it if it works!
Another way people can try milk production is by trying having theirãoiete (water) a couple of times per day for an hour each time. Theoretically, this could help increase production due to increased fluidity in the body’s cells.
