Did you know that fear of low supply is the number one reason breastfeeding Moms stop nursing? Normal newborn behaviors like frequent nursing, nursing for long (sometimes very long) periods and difficulty pumping can all lead breastfeeding Moms to question their supply. I speak to many Moms who find themselves supplementing with formula as a result of this fear, which creates a fierce cycle that further diminishes milk supply. Breastfeeding is supply and demand, sometimes the demand is high (especially with young babies) but know that breast milk is extremely beneficial to your baby! The La Leche League has a great article on increasing supply on their website.
How do you know if you’re making enough breast milk? Most Moms are making enough milk, however consulting with an international board certified lactation consultant (IBCLC), attending La Leche League meetings, educating oneself, and speaking with other breastfeeding Moms is a great way to know that your nursing relationship is going well. What do you do if you experience a dip in supply? Maybe your period is returning, you’re ovulating, under stress, or suddenly find yourself pumping a bit less at work. Many Moms turn to breastfeeding supplements to give their supply a boost! One such supplement is Milkflow Fenugreek – Blessed Thistle Drinkable Supplement.
