Tips For Increasing Breast Milk Supply

Would you like some tips for increasing breast milk supply?  Some new mothers, assuming that everything will go well when they nurse their newborn, are shocked and disappointed to find it to be difficult or less than enjoyable.

Breastfeeding Issues

Various issues can cause a negative feeling about nursing.  A mom may have an issue with her baby latching and breastfeeding because of a low supply of milk or a poor quality of breast milk.

A low supply or less than ideal quality of the milk could be caused by many factors, including postpartum stress, a mineral deficiency, a poor diet, hereditary factors, or inadequate fluid intake.

There are many benefits to nursing your baby. Breastfeeding can provide a perfect opportunity for a mother and her baby to bond. Breastfeeding also has the added advantage of helping a new mother shed that extra weight put on during pregnancy.

With a few simple tips, a mother who is struggling with breastfeeding may be able to turn it into an enjoyable and rewarding experience for both herself and her newborn. Listed below are some simple tips that may help you.

Tips For Increasing Breast Milk Supply

There are a few simple tips that can help in increasing the quantity and quality of your milk.

  • REST - Resting as much as possible can help with the healthy production of breast milk.
  • DIET - Eating a healthy diet rich in fruits and vegetables is vital.
  • FLUIDS - It is important to drink plenty of water, at least 8 glasses a day.
  • AVOID - Avoid caffeine, alcohol, cigarette smoke (including second-hand smoke) and other drugs.
  • BABY ON BREAST - Be sure to put your baby on the breast every 2-3 hours to encourage continued stimulation of your milk supply.

An Herbal Breastfeeding Tonic

For a natural, herbal breastfeeding tonic, some women take a daily supply of Nature's Milk Drops to help increase their milk supply.

Nature's Milk Drops, by Native Remedies, acts as an excellent breastfeeding tonic to support a healthy flow of milk, maintaining healthy lactation in the breastfeeding mother. It also acts as a digestive tonic for both mother and baby.

I like Nature's Milk Drops because it is a 100% natural remedy and contains herbal ingredients that are specifically chosen for their abilities to support lactation and act as a natural breastfeeding stimulant.

Herbal support can help as a natural way to assist in making breastfeeding an enjoyable and rewarding experience.

Using a "wellness" approach, and with her usual friendly and informative style, trust me, she can help you help yourself getting out of the rut - naturally - in no time."

"I just want to say in my capacity as pediatrician, teacher of pediatrics, and medical journalist, how very impressed I am by your website. I think your site is very thoughtful, not at all doctrinaire, and will be very valuable to mothers (and I think fathers, too in a second-hand sort of way) suffering from a variety of postpartum problems, of which the most common and perhaps the most serious is PPD. Anyway, thank you for your site, which I will certainly pass on to mothers in my practice."

Sydney Z. Spiesel, Ph DMD Clinical Professor of Pediatrics, Yale University School of Medicine
