Healthy nursing tea has been great maintaining my supply. Our family all caught head colds and I noticed a decrease in my milk supply. I quickly started introducing this tea into my daily routine and within 24 hours saw an increase in my milk supply.

I had a hard time with my milk after my 3rd child. I drank the teas and also got some in pill form from a natural food store by me, and along with pumping, my supply came up really good that I had quite a freezer full for a while.

Over at KellyMom.com it says that the main ingredients of Mother's Milk Tea are things like fenugreek, blessed thistle, and nettle. I guess some people find if they just take those herbs on their own the dosage is higher and they get better results.

I tried fenugreek capsules -- massive, massive headache!! ouch - couldn't stick with it long enough to see results. I've had better results with adding an extra pump and more water. . . good luck!

It is not proven but I have heard and tried it and it has worked for me...eating oatmeal not instant oatmeal but the kind you cook and it will up your supply..also becareful of things can lower your supply ex. dehydration, stress, not eating enough, and sleep! Hope this helps..

sometimes just taking 5 mins to yourself with a warm drink to relax and unwind helps your supply. i can tell how stressed i am by how much my boobs leek (or not as the case may be).

i did try the tea and it seemed to work for me. i drank a couple cups a day. who knows, it could be a placebo effect, but honestly, I think a lot of nursing is mental anyway (confidence in your supply helps you relax> helps your supply)

If you have a pump, trying pumping right after you nurse a couple times, even if you don't get anything, this will usually help get your supply up.
