How can we boost a milk supply?

10th Jan 2017

Any number of reasons can cause a decrease in a nursing mother’s milk supply. Some common reasons for a reduction in milk supply include stress, illness or separation from baby. To support mother’s who are struggling with maintaining a healthy milk supply, Bellani  carries the Motherlove line of breastfeeding products.

Motherlove, who’s tag line is “Nurturing Life”, creates each of their products with certified organic herbs. They take into consideration that every mom is unique and may be sensitive to certain ingredients. Their products never contain dairy, shellfish, fish, egg, tree nuts, peanuts, wheat or gluten. They care deeply about the kind of product they provide to moms who are nourishing the next generation and manufacture their products in an FDA registered, GMP certified facility and are regularly tested for bacteria and heavy metals to ensure purity and quality. It’s a company who really cares about moms, babies and the environment.

We carry many Motherlove products designed to increase and enrich milk supply, these two are the most commonly requested.

  • Motherlove More Milk Plus Capsules: Motherlove’s best-selling herbal lactation formula in an alcohol-free liquid form

  • Motherlove More Milk Special Blend: a variation on the best-selling formula with goat’s rue, created at the request of lactation consultants, can stimulate mammary tissue & increase breast milk for women who did not increase in breast size during pregnancy, have had previous breast surgeries and adoptive mothers
  • How do you pick the right formula for you – capsule or liquid? This is how the folks at Motherlove explain it:

    Both should be equally effective. Liquid extracts are more quickly absorbed through the mucus membranes in the mouth than the capsules, which take about 1/2 hour to digest and enter the system. The extracts cost less, but many women prefer the vegetarian capsules for convenience and ease of use.

    Whatever product you choose, we know you and your baby will love it. Motherlove is trusted by medical professionals and moms to make sure growing babies stay well-nourished. If you’ve found yourself with a decrease in milk supply, Motherlove is just the thing to successfully continuing to breastfeed.
