How long should I use Motherlove vegetarian capsules?
Every mother’s needs vary. Some women are able to use these products for a short time to increase their breast milk supply. Others, once their supply increases to the desired level, are able to decrease the amount or number of doses per day to maintain the desired supply of breast milk. Many women are able to stop taking the product all together as their bodies are able to maintain an adequate milk supply. Some women may need to use Motherlove’s lactation products the entire time they are nursing to maintain their milk supply. We encourage women to use the amount that best meets their baby’s growing demands.
What should I do if it is not working?
Be sure you are taking the correct amount for your body weight according to the suggested use on the label. These products may be taken with 1-2 oz. of liquid. Although it is important to drink plenty of fluids throughout the day, for maximum effectiveness avoid drinking liquids 15 minutes before or after each dose. Drinking more liquids than specified with each use may dilute the herbs in your system. There are certain herbs (including sage, parsley, and peppermint) and medications (such as over-the-counter decongestants) that can lower milk supply. Try to avoid these while breastfeeding. Some lactation consultants also warn that some anti depressants and hormonal birth control may lower breast milk supply. As there can be many causes of low milk supply, we recommend working with a lactation consultant to help you with your particular breastfeeding situation.
Are these herbs safe?
The herbs in our products are culinary herbs traditionally used throughout the world. They have been used to safely and effectively increase breast milk for generations. Fenugreek and fennel are common in Middle Eastern cuisine. Fenugreek is also used to make imitation maple flavoring. Nettle, called a “storehouse of nutrition,” is a wonderful spring green when cooked and is full of valuable minerals such as iron, calcium, and other trace minerals. Blessed thistle is most often recommended to strengthen the liver.
