Best Herbs to Increase Breastmilk Production

 

There are several herbs that work well to increase milk production.  You may be wondering which one is best for you!  Here is a brief summary - there is MUCH more information under Articles & Information and a more detailed and comprehensive one in the Premium Article section.  Here is a brief summary though:

Nursing Tea Moringa Blend or Tincture - its the same combination of herbs, just two different ways of taking it.  (What is a tincture, and how do you take it?)  This is a good product to choose as a first course of action, as its very easy to use, and very easy on baby's young tummy.  It will help increase milk production while helping to alleviate gas, colic, reflux or indigestion.

Goat's Rue - works to stimulate the mammary glands themselves, so it is a fantastic herb for women who have trouble with their milk supply right from the beginning.

Blessed Thistle - this digestive bitter is also a fantastic herb for increasing milk supply.  We've had a few women who Fenugreek has not worked for, and Blessed Thistle has done a fantastic job for them!

Fenugreek - one of the strongest herbs to increase milk production.  It must be used with consistency though, otherwise it can drop the supply if a dose is forgotten or the herb discontinued suddenly.  Much more information on this herb and how to use it correctly, and how to wean down off of it once your supply is where you want it to be can be seen here.  It works great and is one of the most popular herbs for increasing breastmilk production!

All of these herbs can be used together if needed and desired.  Please take a little time to read more about these herbs and other ways that are helpful in increasing breastmilk production!

 

 

Testimonial

I am a nursing mother and I am very concerned about taking any medications for illness. I have used Echinacea very successfully to fight a sinus infection and a bad cold. The Echinacea had no ill effects on my baby or my milk supply. I feel that the herbs helped my body fight the infections better than an antibiotic prescription would have. The antibiotics attack both the good and bad organisms in my body creating the opportunity for thrush or yeast infection in either me or my baby, whereas the herbs help my body rid itself of only the bad organisms and to heal with no worry of any kind of secondary problem.
