Tea for Nursing Mothers

Lil Tip: Mother's Milk to the Rescue

Breastfeeding, like most things in life, has its ups and downs. Many nursing mothers experience a decrease in their milk supply especially working moms who pump often since pumping doesn't always provide the same strong suction that the infant does.

Whenever I felt my supply decreasing, I turned to Mother's Milk Tea to remedy the problem. While some of it might have been mental, I credit the tea for the return of my milk rivers. At $5 for a box of 16 bags, it was worth a shot and was pretty tasty.

As with most things you consume while nursing, consult your physician before drinking.

Oatmeal is a great way to up your milk supply as well, if you're adverse to flavored teas like I am.

I prefer Yogi's mothers milk tea. It seemed to work better and tasted better :) TM wasn't bad at all, but Yogi was better for me.

I loved the tea with my daughter, and it did work, and make more milk come in buttttttt, when ever I drank it and my daughter would drink my milk she would vomit alot. When I wasn't drinking the tea she wouldnt vomit at all. (and i'm not talking about right after, im talking an hr or so after)

Great advice Niklectric! I had no idea - never tried it iced. I'll have to try that next time.

This tea is very tasty when iced! I used to make 4-cup batches and chill it in the fridge. One warning to those who don't like licorice taste, the tea does have a very faint trace of this flavor. Iced, it's not as noticeable.

I have used this for two different babies and it helped both times :-)
