Wow! Do you have a link or citation?

I just emailed my LC for the details. She showed it to me months ago now, and I don't remember the specifics.

Hi, I am an obsessed breastfeeder. I take so many supplements for my baby, we are 8 months strong.

The most important stuff that I take is coconut oil, DHA, moringa leaf, baoba powder, iodine, cholera and spiralina.

I also do mothers milk tea and supplements and dragon herb tea. I get it all at rrsuperfoods.com. But you can search the net and find it all. But damn my kid id doing great on his milestones. I also don't drink tap water, i get bottles of palomar water delivered and make my own baby food. but nursing is the best, just need to crib train him, grr :)

I found this link amazingly helpful!

For keeping up my supply, I drink about 2 litres of fennel-aniseed-caraway tea (delicious, you wouldn't think it!) and take a nap every day. Either with baby, or straight after a good feed and then DH takes him for a while. What also really helps is pumping after a feed, the Avent handheld pump is amazing!
