7. Do I just eat them to breastfeed successfully?

Our goodies are just aid to help nursing mothers to increase milk supply. Increase in milk production will also be based on frequent feeding and milk expression.

 

Important notes to help produce more milk:

  • Breastmilk production begins with the Law of supply and demand

High demand = high supply | Low demand = low supply

  • Increase intake of expanding foods (vegetables, soup, shells, fruits, water).

  • Refrain from consuming chocolates, sweet and salty foods. Refrain from drinking tea and coffee.

  • Before and after feeding, drink at least 2 glasses of water.

  • When feeding, offer both breasts. Start where you ended.

  • Breastmilk production of right and left breast may not be the same.

  • When away from baby, pump every 2 hours

  • Breastfeeding is best up to 2 years old and beyond!

 

8. Are they exclusively for breastfeeding mothers?

No. Your husband or your child can even eat them, and no, they will not lactate :)

We do have a non-lactation variety of goodies so that you will not be guilty of sharing them with your friends and family.
