do you take a nursing tea? if so,<br><br>
what do you take? how much does it cost?<br><br>
why did you start taking it and how do you like it? do you have to drink it every day?<br><br>
i'm trying some out b/c i have a cold and wanted some tea. but it is kinda $$$. i'm wondering if it will help with our fussy period in the evenings. seems like output was a little more with it but we are coming out of a growth spurt and weren't really having problems.

I drink Mother's Milk Tea (Traditional Medicinals) 1-2x/day. I started a couple months ago when I caught a cold...and I just keep catching colds, so I keep on drinking the tea.<br><br>
It really helps my chronically sore throat. And it does seem to ramp up my milk production, too. Especially if I drink 2 cups.<br><br>
Yes, I do like the taste. It's not very strong. Kind of like a mixture of anise and green tea. Both are flavors I like; I've always been a big green tea drinker.

i like the mother's milk tea too but it was an acquired taste. I also put fennel in with my water. That took a little getting used to but then I actually craved it.<br><br>
If you like anise or licorice-- you're in luck

I drink Mother's Milk Tea from Traditional Medicinals also, although I haven't had it for a week or so. I drink it 3x per day when I'm at work. I'm not sure if it helps my milk supply any, but it sure helps relieve some of my working mama guilt<img alt="" class="inlineimg" src="http://www.mothering.com/discussions/images/smilies/smile.gif" style="border:0px solid;" title="smile"> I thought about blending my own tea because the Mother's Milk tea bags are kind of expensive.<br><br>

I've had the Traditional Medicinals tea from time to time. At first just one cup a day made a difference in my supply, but it didn't seem to last, so I went up to two or three. At any rate, my supply is great now, so I'm not drinking it any more. As for the taste, it's not super wow yummy, but it's nothing to complain about.
