Let’s get that milk supply up!

How do we get our milk supply up? Is that even possible? Well hell yes it is. We just have to find the right tools and use them properly.

Not all of us are blessed with an oversupply of breastmilk and some of us have to work really hard to be a dairy cow. (Moo) Mrs. Milk has made that a little easier by baking us all some lactation cookies that we can purchase in either 12 or 36 bar boxes! They are all individually packed and ready to eat. Yup, it’s that easy.

So you have the boobs, you have the demanding baby, you have the bars, now what?

You start eating girl! One bar a day. Well, that’s what I did. Jaxson used to drink my DRY. And if your baby drinks you dry, how the hell do you build a supply for when you cannot feed the baby and someone else has to? Since we aren’t born with detachable boobs (Um why?), we need to pump for our babies and make sure they keep getting their precious liquid gold.

Mrs. Milk helps with exactly that, boosting your supply so that you have more than enough to feed baby AND pump out to build a supply. My supply increased dramatically and not only did I have enough for Jaxson and my freezer stash, I had enough to donate to other babies in need of breastmilk. Crazy cool right?

Anyway, all the nitty gritty you need to know about these bars are below. I say, try them. If you do, let me know if they work for you like they worked for me!

KEY INGREDIENTS:

ROLLED OATS:  For decades, informed mothers have been recommending a hearty bowl of oatmeal as the ideal breakfast serving for nursing mammas. Many would agree that this was done for a very good reason. Iron-rich oats represent the first line of defense in staving off maternal anemia – a leading cause of insufficient milk yield. The comforting properties contained in oats certainly increases your level of oxytocin (the ‘feel good’ hormone) and additionally contributes towards assisting with ‘let-down’ (adorable pics of baby are also considered helpful!). In addition, Oats are instrumental in delivering much-needed fiber to the body, promoting slow-burning energy, enabling the more energetic moms to keep up with their favorite ‘jogging stroller mommy group

GROUND FLAX: Flaxseed is widely regarded as the dream food for nursing mothers because it is a rich source of Omega 3. Omega 3 not only assists in combatting postpartum depression by regulating mood-altering hormones, the oils are credited with helping to improve the overall QUALITY of your breastmilk. Additionally, the phytochemicals in flaxseed closely mimic estrogen, potentially enhancing milk supply. Flaxseed also provides the extra dose of fiber and calcium your body needs to stay strong.

FENUGREEK: Fenugreek is the hallowed ingredient all breastfeeding mammas are bound to encounter at some stage in their nursing careers. It’s said that eating Fenugreek enhances skin odour, allowing it to smell vaguely sweet – with maple Syrup overtones. Now there’s a thing! The other benefit of this wunderkind is it’s inherent super-milk-making powers. Mothers have for centuries sworn allegiance to the herbal properties contained in Fenugreek, in assisting them with enhanced breast milk production.

BREWERS YEAST: Has anyone ever told you to “drink a beer” to boost your milk supply? Well, one explanation for this is brewer’s yeast. An ingredient in beer-making, brewer’s yeast is not only a known galactagogue, but it is packed with valuable B vitamins and protein. B vitamins are essential for a healthy immune system and glowing skin, hair and nails. Brewer’s yeast is also a great source of chromium, a mineral responsible for stabilizing blood sugar levels (fewer sugar crashes ahead- yeah!). And get this: brewer’s yeast is considered a probiotic, which means it aids digestion. Because of its wealth of nutritive powers, brewer’s yeast has been used to treat everything from acne to lactose intolerance to the common cold. Who DOESN’T need this stuff?
