Ayurveda the ancient Indian system of living is derived from Vedas. The aim of Ayurveda is not only healing of the the sick but also prevention of its occurrence and promoting health aspects-preservation of life. Ayurveda has its own principles and theories. It is widely recognized breastfeeding the best nutrition for human infants. Breast milk is the optimal food for almost all infants in the first year of life. The breastmilk provides numerous health benefits to both mother and baby. Breastfeeding should begin soon after birth. Breastfeeding is the best way to care for new child. Besides the overwhelming bonding it creates, breast milk is also the perfect food for them. Likewise in Ayurvedic texts, formation of stanya (breast milk), causes of stanya pravriti (or milk ejection), dhatri (wetnurse), dhatri-pariksha (examination of wet-nurse), stanapan-vidhi (breast feeding), stanyasampat (merits of breasts), stanyanasha hetu (causes of cessation of milk formation), stanyaviridhi dravyas (drugs increasing quantity of milk), stanya apanayakala (weaning period), abnormalities of breast-milk and its treatment etc. are discussed in detail.

Similarly abnormalities in many srotas affects stanya formation and expulsion.
