Mama's Milk - Breastfeeding Herbal Tincture
This Naturopath formulated herbal extract blend contains nourishing galactagogue herbs to support a plentiful breastmilk supply, and bring calm to a windy or colicky baby.
The word galactagogue comes from the Greek meaning ‘milk promoting’ and is understood to be a substance that promotes lactation in humans and other animals. Galactagogues have a long history of use and are thought to work by increasing prolactin release. Prolactin is a hormone that gets released into the blood stream in response to the suckling stimulus on the nipple.
Contains: Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare), Fenugreek [optional] (Trigonella foenum-graecum), Goats Rue (Galega officinalis), Nettle leaf (Urtica dioica), Shatavari root (Asparagus racemosa)
For those that prefer the convenience and potency of liquid herbal extracts.
To help boost breastmilk supply, take 5ml diluted in a little water or juice, 3 x day preferably before meals. Comes with convenient measuring cup.
200ml - approximately 2 weeks supply.
500ml - approximately 1 month supply.
Suitable for any breastfeeding mother, at any stage of her breastfeeding experience.
These herbs offer support to increase breastmilk supply - great if a mum has had supply issues with previous baby or little breast change throughout pregnancy.
Can also be used when a mum is needing to express of a regular basis e.g returning back to work. Also recommended for those mothers who feel their supply cannot quite keep up with their babies needs!
* Do not take during pregnancy *
Why Fenugreek free?
Taking Fenugreek may be an issue for some women who have PCOS, blood sugar problems, clotting problems or diabetes. Please use under the guidance of your GP in these circumstances.
Please select 'No Fenugreek Please' or see the 'Mama's Milk FF' (Fenugreek-free) Breastfeeding Herbal Capsules) for a great alternative!
Occasionally some mums have noticed that their baby is fussy and/or has green, watery stools when they are taking fenugreek, and that these symptoms go away they discontinue the fenugreek.
Fenugreek can cause some digestive in mums (upset stomach, diarrhoea), so it’s possible for it to cause tummy symptoms in baby too.
Another reason for these types of symptoms - and perhaps more likely than a reaction to the herb - is that mum's supply has increased due to the fenugreek and the symptoms are those of oversupply, where baby is getting too much foremilk. Fussiness, gas and green watery stools are classic symptoms of an overabundant milk supply. More info here.
