WANT TO MAKE MORE MILK?
Many mothers want to increase their milk supply, but please be wary of herbal remedies. There is very little research showing that they really increase your supply. They could also interact negatively with medication that you might be on and your baby might not tolerate them well either. Rather talk to your dietician or doctor about what you can do to increase your supply. The best advice is to eat well, drink enough, sleep enough and let your baby feed on demand and empty your breast with every feed. This signals the “factory” to make more.
Make sure that any supplement you use does not contain too much vitamin B, as this can suppress milk supply.
