A galactagogue--your SAT word of the day--is a food, herb, or supplement that aids milk supply or ejection. Read our gallery to learn about what you should be eating to help boost your milk production.

Very useful. We have learned as well that when the baby hear specific sounds, he is more likely to calm and suck so that lactation will come easier. For example when the mother sings, and more surprisingly when he listens to underwater sounds. here for example some noises http://www.reverbnation.com/underwatersounds
it was quite amazing to see how calm and docile he became, and milk came within very short time after that, so the rocky start really wasn't too long.
