Mothers having problems with milk supply use the More Milk Plus Vegetarian Capsules. These capsules are made up of galactagogues that do a great job at stimulating the mammary glands to increase breastmilk production. More Milk Plus Vegetarian Capsules are available at our store.
Problems with milk supply start in many different ways. Sometimes it is simply not drinking enough fluids. Other times, stress can set off milk production problems. Certain medications can also dry up milk. So, milk supply problems occur for many reasons.
THE one problem that More Milk Plus Vegetarian Capsules can’t solve is infrequent pumping or breastfeeding. Pumping around the clock is important and necessary.
Poor, tired mothers, I am very sympathetic to your need for rest. But, skipping feedings or pumping at night will cause your milk to dry up, especially in the first 5-6 months.
This is the time when new mothers are still recovering from birth and wild raging hormones. Mothers need their rest so much, but mammary glands need the hormone stimulation. These two needs are in direct conflict with each other.
A three (3) hour pumping schedule at night will reset the hormones that trigger milk production. An example schedule would be 10PM. 1AM, 4AM. After your milk is back to normal, try increasing the 3 hour schedule with a four (4) hour schedule, so you can get a bit more rest, but don’t give up night feedings.
Try to nap during pumping or breastfeeding sessions at night. Your rest is also important to milk production. Mothers did this for millennia but now mothers work outside the home after having a baby. So many demands on women’s bodies are difficult to manage.
So during the times when milk production is low, take More Milk Plus Vegetarian Capsules to stimulate more milk production but remember that regular milk removal from the breast is critical to milk production.
