Increase milk supply
Fri, 05-16-2003 - 1:46pm
I have been pumping for ten weeks. My son is 4 months tomorrow. When my milk supply was running low I started drinking Mother's Milk tea. I drink 2 to 3 cups every night about an hour to two hours before I go to bed. Double pumping works best. Relax and give yourself at least 15 minutes when pumping sometimes it takes time to really kick in. When you are almost done use a single pump and massage the breast with the other hand from the top, side , and bottom. Sometimes this will help empty those milk ducts. The Mother's Milk tea is really what has done the trick for me. If you have tried it make sure you are steeping it properly and drinking 3 cups a day. It takes about a week for it to get into your system. Then you will be overflowing!

Best of Luck,

I drink Mother's Milk tea occasionally. How do you steep it? I just make it like regular ole tea. TIA
