Traditional Medicinals Organic Mother’s Milk, 16-Count Boxes (Pack of 6)

Personality : supportive, empowering and believes in you. Herbal power : traditionally used to help nursing mothers with breast milk production. Reason to love : while your bundle of joy is probably causing you no end of delight, moms can also feel overwhelmed and tired, especially when it comes to breastfeeding. We love the fact that this herbal tea has traditionally been used to help mothers support their production of breast milk and to promote healthy lactation. With herbs like fennel, anise (which give the tea a sweet, licorice like taste), coriander and fenugreek, each sip is like stepping into a tradition that has been passed down from woman to woman for hundreds of years. Taste sweet, spicy, slightly bitter with a distinct licorice-like taste. The statements have not been evaluated by the food and drug administration.

It works! This is my second child, and I didn’t produce well for the first one, so I’d pretty much resigned myself to minimal milk production and the theory that anything was better than nothing. I was pumping at work three times a day and taking home about 9 ounces of milk total (and at that, it’s more than I’d managed with the first child) when I caught a cold, and my production started to dwindle again, even though I wasn’t taking any drugs. Frustrated but unwilling to wean my baby at only 2 months old, I started taking this tea in the hope that it would at least sustain my current level of production. Because it’s a little on the expensive side (I was buying it locally at the full retail price) I only drank 3 cups a day. (It recommends 3-5.)A week later, with my cold only just starting to clear up, I was taking home almost 12 ounces of milk. Another week and a half later, I’m catching another cold (the downside of having 2 kids in daycare…) but I’m taking home a solid 14-15 ounces of milk every day. This tea is the ONLY THING I have done differently — no other supplements or dietary changes, no changes in feeding or pumping schedules — so I know for sure it’s the tea that’s doing it!I don’t know where its effectiveness will level out, or if my production will continue to stay elevated if I stop drinking the tea, but at this point, I’m just thrilled with the short term results!

More Milk! I returned to work when my little guy was 3 months old and by 5 months I had used ALL my freezer stash. My baby had only had breastmilk but I couldn’t keep up with what they fed him at daycare.He eats 16oz while I am at work. I was pumping 3-4 times at work for 20 minutes at a time and only getting 2 1/2 oz per session. I was so frustrated and exhausted! I tried everything: more water, more frequent pumping sessions, more frequent nursing while with the baby, I even took a nursing weekend where all I did was nurse and pump and rest but I still couldn’t get more than 3 oz per pumping session.I started with 5 cups of tea per day. I don’t like the smell or flavor of black licorice so I was worried that I would have to gag this tea down…it isn’t pleasant but it is tolerable. I can even drink it without adding sugar, honey, or milk but it will never be a drink I like or want.Day one I really didn’t see any change at all.Day two I pumped 3 times and got 11 oz which was the most I had gotten at work in weeks.Day three I pumped 3 times at work and each time I got 5 oz or more. I ended the day with 17 oz and was thrilled! That evening I nursed my son when we got home but could tell I wasn’t empty so I pumped right after nursing and got another 2oz. That night I leaked through the night and had to change my shirt…now I don’t drink any tea after 6 pm.I’ve been using the tea for only ten days now and have started a new freezer stash that is currently at 20 oz. The peace of mind is great, knowing I have extra. I am consistently pumping 5oz per session and getting the extra 2-3oz after my nursing session with my son at 5:30 and sometimes I pump at 8 p.m. after nursing and get another 2-3 oz. As an added bonus, my little guy was still waking every two hours until I started drinking this tea. The past three nights he has slept 4 hours at a time.
