As a mom of three and a serious breastfeeding madwoman, I would be lost without my herbal tea for enhancing milk production. I have shared this tea with many moms on the verge of losing their milk and have had many fabulous stories. All of the organic herbs in Breast is Best Tea has been used for centuries by European women and are often recommended by lactation consultants for their lactogenic properties.
After checking the prices at my local health store I decided to make my own tea for nursing moms at a fraction of the cost. I have enjoyed this tea with my 2 youngest children for years and can attribute my milk production to taking it faithfully.
Here are some of the organic herbs in my Breast is Best Tea:
Fennel seed increases milk supply in nursing mothers, improves digestion and reduces gas in mother and baby.
Nettle leaf is loaded with minerals that help build/replace the blood lost in childbirth. It also contains high levels of chlorophyll which aids in building a mother’s milk supply after giving birth.
Red Raspberry leaf has been taken by many women around the world during pregnancy and after to tone the uterus and to prevent excessive bleeding during childbirth. It is responsible for bringing the milk down and enriching the quality of a mother’s milk.
Dandelion leaf is rich in iron, magnesium, calcium, B1, B2, B3 and vitamin C. Dandelion is one of the best blood and liver purifiers around making it very important for the production of clean milk.
Blessed thistle improves blood circulation to the breasts and is effective in reducing flatulence in mother and baby.
Fenugreek seed is a prized herb that has been used in Asia for centuries by lactating women to promote milk production. It is also very effective in reducing flatulence, lowering bad cholesterol and supporting the liver.
Peppermint leaf is used for nausea, stomach upset, headache, sinus congestion and gas in nursing moms and children.
I enjoyed this tea 3 to 6 times a day after giving birth and now I take 1 to 3 times a day since I am still nursing. When I went back to work full-time I noticed a drop in my milk production at first which devastated me. So I came up with a little plan that worked like a charm. In the morning I would take a hot shower making sure to let the hot water pour down on the chest area.
While I was showering I had my tea brewing and would come out of the shower and pump while drinking my hot Breast is Best Tea. Then while nursing baby I would enjoy another cup of tea and one more while at work. Then right before bed, I made another cup. I love adding in raw organic milk or rice milk and sweetening with raw organic honey.
This tea has helped many women regain their milk supply but you don’t have to be nursing to enjoy it. It’s a delicious tea that you can enjoy anytime.
