Hey there! You know that feeling when everything just falls into place? Well, I had that moment this morning when I woke up to my first menstrual cycle after delivering my surrogate baby just three months ago. I was surprised because my milk supply hadn’t dipped like it usually does during my postpartum periods. I think it’s because I’ve been on a set pumping schedule, taking supplements, and drinking lactation teas regularly.
I know firsthand how tough it can be to maintain milk supply, especially if you naturally have low supply like me. That’s why I pump every two hours during the day and take supplements like Potassium, Magnesium, Sodium, and Calcium to keep my electrolytes in check. And if you’re not into taking supplements individually, Nikki from Cookies, Then Milk has created Quick Boost Lactation Capsules Period which might be worth checking out.
I also recommend drinking Earth Mama and Mother’s Milk with Fenugreek to help increase and maintain milk supply. But be careful with Fenugreek because it can decrease supply for some moms. If you’re struggling with supply, try adding in these supplements and power pump at least once a day for five days during your period. You got this!
