Things to help increase milk supply:
1. Pump every 2-4 hours for at least 10-15 minutes on each side
2. Eliminate or minimize intake of milk production inhibitors (medications like Sudafed, tobacco, mint, sage, parsley)
3. Add to diet or increase consumption of these herbs/foods:
– anise, basil, blessed thistle, caraway, chasteberry, cotton, fennel, squawvine, verbena
4. Healthy nursing tea/3x daily and it contains almost all above mentioned herbs.
