Breastfeeding doesn’t always come naturally. Many mothers struggle with milk supply, especially in the first few weeks of life with a newborn, which can cause added stress at an already overwhelming time. Milk Maker is specially formulated to support healthy milk supply and volume for busy breastfeeding Mums and thriving babies.
With natural, galactagogue herbs in an easy to take, one-a-day capsule, Milk Maker is a quick and convenient option for busy Mums and a fast and effective way to support optimal breast milk production.
There are a number of reasons why breast milk supply may be affected. These include:
- Infrequent or short feedings
- An incomplete latch
- Some medications such as antihistamines or oral contraceptives
- Health conditions
- Premature birth
- Previous breast surgery or trauma
|Ingredients (per vege capsule)|
Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum) seed
Goat's Rue (Galega officinalis) plant
Shatavari (Asparagus racemosus) root
Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare) seed
Fenugreek is a well-known galactagogue and is one of the most popular herbs used to enhance healthy breast milk supply and volume. Slightly bitter, fenugreek is also a digestive aid supporting gastrointestinal comfort and appetite.
Goat's Rue is another popular herb used to support breast milk supply and is often recommended by lactation consultants. Research has shown that Goat’s Rue can also support healthy blood sugar levels, which may be beneficial to help normal milk supply in mother’s where underlying hormonal conditions affect breast milk production.
Shatavari is also known for its galactagogue properties and can help to support a healthy milk supply for breastfeeding mothers. As an adaptogen, shatavari additionally helps the body combat emotional stress and overwhelm which is common in new and busy Mums.
Fennel is another popular and traditional herb that has been used to support breast milk volume and flow. As a natural carminative, fennel also helps to relieve gastrointestinal upset and may help to support the feelings of gas and digestive discomfort in both Mum and baby.
How to use:
Breastfeeding adults: Take 1 capsule once daily to support milk supply. Best taken in the morning with food. Dose may be increased to 1 capsule up to twice daily if required or as professionally advised.
Take Milk Maker with water, or pair with Two Islands Pea Protein Powder in a smoothie for extra energy and nutrition – trust us, your body will thank you for it.
Along with Milk Maker, it’s important to make sure you are eating a well-balanced diet and staying hydrated to help support adequate breast milk production. Getting enough protein rich foods each day such as chicken, red meat, fish and eggs plus including foods such as oats, fennel, brewer’s yeast and pumpkin seeds are all natural ways to support milk supply while breastfeeding.
Conversely, there are a number of foods that may affect or decrease milk supply. Herbs such as peppermint, parsley and sage that are often added to meals may potentially decrease milk production when consumed in large quantities. While there is no published evidence to support this, if you’re experiencing less than normal milk supply, we suggest taking Milk Maker while avoiding these herbs in your diet and focusing on adequate water and protein intake.
