As a new mom, being told that my milk production was great and that I should not have anything to worry about I was pretty darn happy and ready to get nursing.
Fast forward 3 months and things had changed. I was now pumping and nursing but started to notice my supply was dwindling. I didn’t know what to do about this. I drank more water, took warm showers, had my babe nurse on both more often but nothing seemed to be working. That’s when I spoke to my naturopath at True Roots Healthcare and she suggested I try a nursing tea (there are many brands out there but the one I use is a blend made at the naturopathic clinic I go to and is a loose leaf blend).
I will say, I was a bit skeptical at first, I mean come on, a tea, really…this was her big suggestion to magically amp up my milk production again!!! I gave it a try anyway and , well, I can happily say that it began to work. Not only that, it tastes amazing and I look forward to my cups of daily goodness!!!
My suggestion to new moms who may be having the same issue with their milk supply…don’t downplay anything and try everything. If nothing seems to be working I’m also a firm believer in “do what works to feed your babe”…don’t fear alternatives to breastmilk yes ladies I mean try formula!!! Your baby needs to eat and you need to remain happy and sane. Love yourself and know that you will make the best decisions for both yourself and your little one.
In health and happiness 😊
