If one''s breast milk supply is low, what medication would you recommend the mom to use

Expert's Reply



The stimulus for a breastfeeding mother to produce breastmilk is the infant's sucking at the breast. This causes the release of the hormone called 'prolactin' which is the natural stimulus for producing breastmilk. It would be preferable not to use Eglonyl or other artificial ways to increase milk production.

Hi Mum,

Try Jungle Juice, it helped me, I was the resident moo cow! Use 50ml Blackthorn Berry Elixir, made by Schlehen, 1lt of Apple Juice, 2 lt of water, 1 x sachet of Blackcurrent Rehidrat and 10 drops of Rescue Remedy. Hope this helps you. It will stimulate your milk production and increase your energy levels.
