Nabeez water is marinated water from dates, now also known as infused water. Potassium or potassium contained in dates will block dopamine receptors, and then stimulate prolactin release. In the presence of high prolactin, breast milk production will increase. Prolactin is widely found in breastfeeding mothers, because prolactin is important for stimulating the mammary glands that are useful for producing milk. If the mother's nutrition is good, the milk produced will be of good quality and strength. This study aims to analyze Nabeez Dates on increasing breast milk production and increasing infant weight. The research design used is quantitative research using the experimental quasi approach post-test - only control design.
