How to Choose the Best Breastfeeding Supplements
Most women are able to make enough breast milk for their babies without the use of additional herbs or medications by simply feeding their babies on demand. But for those moms who for various reasons are struggling to make enough breast milk, it may be helpful to try some other options. The first thing to do would be to check the basics: Rest, hydration, balanced diet, and emptying the breasts well at least 8 times a day. But if you are doing all of that and still feel like you are not making enough breast milk, then you may benefit from supplemental foods, herbs or medications. The first thing most women will try is nutrition.
Many women find that eating any or all of the following have helped them to increase their breast milk supply. Steel cut oats, almonds, dark leafy greens, protein, and at least 64 ounces of fluids each day.
