How to increase milk supply?

First time mom to a 3 week old boy.
I’ve noticed a decrease in my milk supply so I got lactation cookies from Walmart to help bust my milk supply again.

Just curious if any other mom’s used them and if so how soon after did you notice a increase in your milk supply.

Please no rude comments😁

Just keep nursing! Nurse often and drink water and Gatorade :grinning:

For me, personally, nothing I did helped. I tried nursing more, pumping more, drinking almost two gallons of water per day (i live in the desert), lactation cookies, lactation teas, brewers yeast, massages… but I couldn’t keep up on it and i dried up a month and a half after having my daughter and a month after my son.

I’ve heard drinking body armor helps boost milk supply. I’m 35 weeks and I started drinking it about a weeks ago to see how it will work.

I took Fenugreek and it worked wonders!

I wonder if they have these lactation cookies in South Africa :thinking:. I could sure do with a boost

Drink a bottle of water while feeding and often

Oatmeal worked the best for me. I couldn’t believe how fast and how much. I tried fenugreek and it felt like it went down with that

It’s most likely your supply beginning to regulate to just what baby needs. Eat plenty of calories, keep hydrated and nurse all he wants. That’ll help

Mother’s Milk teas worked for me. You can find it at Walmart

Gatorade helped me a crap ton. I never ate any cookies though.

I just didn’t produce enough. My friends milk just dried up.

Sometimes it just happens

Don’t do fenugreek because it can sometimes decrease your supply. Water, oatmeal & try the body armor drinks. And nurse, nurse, nurse

I got them they helped for me

Lots of water, oatmeal, nurse/pump constantly it’s a supply and demand. Your supply doesn’t completely regulate tjll 6 weeks. Fenugreek can decrease supply in some women and also can cause lots of gas in babies. Legendairy supplements helped me a lot.

A girl told me not to waste my money on all these lactation foods, she said chocolate oatmeal cookies work just fine.

It helped me. But I also starting eating a lot of those nutrigrain oat bars as well as lactation teas and just a ton of water in general. But I couldn’t keep pumping after 2 months. It made me crazy.

Body armor drinks! Good for hydration! And super good strawberry banana is my favorite, also oatmeal helps :slightly_smiling_face:
