Your supplements have been wonderful for helping me increase my breastmilk production. Shatavari, in particular, shouldn’t be called the herbal Domperidone because it’s better than Domperidone. I’m on Domperidone too, and have had really horrible side effects. I’ve been slowly weaning off over 4 months (3 weeks to go! Hooray!). When I decrease my dose my milk supply temporarily goes down, unless I religiously take the Shatavari and then it’s fine! I’ve taken just about every milk-increasing product out there, and Herb Lore products have worked the best! A.O.
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!
