I just wanted to thank you for all of your products. When my husband and I were trying to conceive, we bought Herb Lore's fertility tinctures and teas (Pre-Conception Tea and Tincture) and we got pregnant that very month. Then once I had had the baby, I started the Nursing Tincture. My milk was delayed due to having a c-section, and within a day of taking it, my daughter had gained weight! (She had lost a pound from birth in a week.) Then when our little one started having gas and Mylicon was making things worse, I took the Tummy Tincture so she would get it in my breastmilk. Within a day, she was no longer getting the severe gas pains and she was burping better too. I just want everyone to know that your products really work! Thank you again! K.L.
Spring and summer are high-allergy times for many, breastfeeding moms included. The common approach is to take an anti-histimine to help alleviate the symptoms. You may not know, however, that these antihistimines can also decrease or dry up breastmilk! These medications are made to dry up secretions and fluids - it will not differentiate between the different body fluids and will commonly decrease breastmilk production. So keep this in mind if you're thinking of resorting to those anti-histimines!
A helpful and effective alternative is the herb Nettle (also known as Stinging Nettle). Its fine for use while pregnant or breastfeeding, and is highly nutritious. Many people swear by this herb to alleviate their allergy symptoms! Homeopathy is also very effective in alleviating allergies!
