Just about every breastfeeding mom I know has been worried about their milk supply. I often see moms asking how they can increase their milk supply and what herbs to take. There are a few different herbs you can take as well as some food that helps boost milk supply. Upspring MilkFlow Fenugreek-Blessed Thistle Powder Drink Mix is an alternative to taking a handful of pills every day.
MilkFlow is a powdered drink mix that you mix with 8 or more ounces of water per packet. MilkFlow is a concentrated blend of herbal extracts which include fenugreek and blessed thistle. Fenugreek and blessed thistle are known galactagogues that help promote a healthy breast milk supply. MilkFlow is vegan, non-GMO and gluten-free. MilkFlow can be mixed with water or any juice. Any liquid you would like really!
MilkFlow has a nice berry flavor. I wouldn’t say MilkFlow is delicious, but it definitely is better than taking a handful of pills! I do not have a low milk supply thanks to my tandem nursing toddler and baby. When Bunny was a baby I had found it was very easy to boost my milk supply. If I ate oatmeal or lactation cookies I would immediately see an increase in my milk supply. It is suggested to drink two to three packets of MilkFlow per day to increase your milk supply. Once your milk supply is where you would like it to be, you can stop drinking MilkFlow. I drank two 8 ounce glasses of water mixed with MilkFlow for three days and noticed an increase in my milk supply. For me, MilkFlow worked very quickly. It can take up to a week for your milk supply to increase while drinking MilkFlow. There are 18 packets in a box. One box should last long enough to increase your milk supply.
MilkFlow is very easy to prepare and to drink. To prepare MilkFlow you simply pour 6-10 ounces of whatever liquid you would like, and stir! I like to use my nifty ball whisk to mix my MilkFlow drinks. If you want a stronger taste, use less liquid. If you would like a lighter taste, use more liquid. MilkFlow not only helps you increase your milk supply, it also helps you drink more fluids! (Which also helps increase milk supply.)
MilkFlow can be used at any time during your breastfeeding journey. If you feel like you need a boost to your milk supply, MilkFlow is a great way to achieve that.
