So I participate in several Yahoo Groups online. Most of them are hairbows or fabric groups. The questions was asked about how to increase milk production for breastfeeding moms. If you don't like the way this discussion is going then just wait for the next post :) I totally understand
I have struggled with milk production with both babies that I have had. Last baby (the 3 yr old) stopped feeding around 4 months because I had nothing left to give. This time around I was hoping that it would be different, but knew otherwise.
One day while browsing the health food section in our local Fred Meyer store I found this stuff
It is called Lactation Blend by Vitanica.
It was $17.00 and I really struggled with buying it because that is a lot of money for something that I know nothing about. Well my hubby talked me into it...I have not been sorry
Here is my review of Lactation Blend by Vitanica:
I love this stuff. There have been several times in the last 7 months of breastfeeding baby that my milk has suddenly stopped coming. My husband has told many that if I were a dairy cow they would have slaughtered me a long time ago. For the first 5 months of breastfeeding I faithfully took these pills (well I am forgetful, so as faithful as possible with my scatter brain). I have not a had a problem with milk making. I could always tell when I was not taking them because the milk would not be there.
I had stopped taking them for a couple of months and baby was fine because she has had food to fill that little extra. Then a few days ago my milk suddenly disappeared again. I took 2 pills before bed and Voila! The next morning my cup runneth over (if you know what I mean). Ever since then I have taken one here and there and I have not had a problem.
Bottom line: if it was not for these pills I don't think I would have made it past month 3. If you have a slight (or large problem) with breastfeeding I would HIGHLY recommend these.
If you have any questions please leave me a comment and I will get right back to you
