Breastfeeding tea for increasing milk supply
I've tried quite a few things to increase my own breast milk supply. I've tried Fenugreek capsules, breastfeeding all day, gummy berry juice and even Domperidone. Domperidone gave results after about 10 days, but cost me a little fortune.
After searching a little online, I discovered "Sacred tea for breastfeeding mothers" I organized myself a packet. This breastfeeding tea has fresh organic ingredients that are brewed the old fashion way. I was a bit worried that it would taste terrible, coz I'm not a big tea drinker and I have tasted plain fenugreek tea...which tasted like curry to me. This tea has a great smell, almost liquorish. It also has a nice taste...i do add a bit of honey and lemon though.
I drank the two cups of the tea before bedtime the first night and had a lot more milk in the morning than usual...it seems to work much better than the Domperidone, it's half the price and much healthier to take, I'm sure.
After using this breastfeeding tea for a while I decided to make my own version of it, so I went to the herbal shop and bought...
Fenugreek seed, Fennel seed, Alfalfa leaf, Anise seed and blessed thistle. Mixed them all together...
Put about 2 heaped tablespoons of this in two litres of water and boiled it on the stove for about 10 minutes.
Added lemon and honey and voila...I have my own breastfeeding tea! And it works just as well.
Now, I don't know what I would do without this tea. Making it yourself is ten times cheaper.
