Q&A with SPB: Are there herbs that could drop my milk supply?

Posted on November 23, 2016 at 5:15 PM

This is a common question I get around the holidays... 

The big 4 herbs found in holiday recipes, over-the-counter cold formulations and cough drops:

  • Parsley
  • Sage
  • Peppermint (and other plants from the MINT {mentha} family)
  • Thyme

I also mention Oregano since oregano oil is an ingredient used by women who intentionally want to decrease their milk supply at weaning.

Other things that might be dropping your milk supply around the holidays:

  • Skipping feedings because we are too busy
  • Stress
  • Lack of sleep

So take a deep breath and see if you can figure out what is going on - it may be a combination of things that are causing your breastmilk supply to be lower than usual.

What to do if you need to increase your supply:

  • Add oatmeal to your diet - for whatever reason it's a great natural milk booster that is found in most pantries - no extra trip to the store for this one!
  • Jnantik Mayan Superfood Coffee Alternative - mix up a brew made from this amazing Mayan been, add your favorite creamer (I love it with Almond milk!) and sit back and relax
  • Mulanggay Leaf - both Motherlove and Go-Lacta make products that contain mulanggay leaf - many moms have good results with these products

Ok - have a great holiday season!! Wishing you and yours a blessed season.
