I just had to send my 7 month old to daycare with 1 bottle of formula because I have run through my freezer stash and can't pump enough to meet her demands.
Trust me when I say I am pumping all that I can, cosleeping, taking lots of herbs. The one thing I haven't done is take Mothers Milk Tea because it didn't seem possible to me that it would work. But, last resort I bough Earth Mama Angel Baby Milkmaid tea and will drink that this week. Does anyone else have a favorite brand or has this brand worked for you? If so, what kind of increase did you see? I am short 3oz per day and am trying desparatly to make that up so I can phase out the formula.
i personally like to alternate between yogi tea, traditional medicinal, and earth mama angel baby-mother love makes good milk supply products as well. i like the flavor of the earth mama angel baby one best. i would also suggest checking out the book 'mother food' by hilary jacobson, she also has a website www.mother-food.com and mobimotherhood.org, if you're on facebook she also has a page there that is a good reference as well. i have found that just by eating oatmeal in the morning is a great help for my milk supply, also malt o meal, cheerios work from what i've heard. i highly recommend the book though. best of luck!
