Someone told me that the brewers yeast in beer will help keep up your milk supply, and that I should have a beer every once ina while. Is this safe? Has anyone tried it? I've read that its okay, but I guess I just need to hear it from other moms. No critisizing please.Answer Question

Brewers yeast may help, so you can take just that. However it is unproven, There are lots of other things that have been proven to work. Brewer's yeast is often reported to be a galactagogue, however many feel that brewer's yeast is not effective for increasing milk supply. Brewer's yeast is a rich source of B vitamins, and a protein source, providing essential amino acids. It often causes bay to be gassy.
Drinking beer is NOT helpful because alcohol inhibits the let down reflex and actually DECREASES your milk supply.
