  • Nurse on demand. Do not introduce bottles. Drink and eat the right amount.

    Only 1% of women in the world truly have low milk supply according to the World Health Organization. The rest have correctable issues that were most likely induced by something someone told them to do or something they thought was right.

    For example...A new born is having trouble latching and is nursing around the clock because they can't stay on long enough to satify hunger at one sitting. SO instead of continueing to nurse them like this and realizing that practice makes perfect...Grandma comes in the room and suggests a bottle to the tired, frustrated mom. The mom gives in because she doesn't know what else to do and Bippity Bobbity Boop...A milk supply issue is born.

    No one was meaning to do something wrong and no one thought it would be harmful but it was.

    BREASTFEEDING EDUCATION is the BEST way to keep an excellant milk supply!
