Any moms wanting to produce more milk or help with let down?

Not reallqy asking a question but figured I'd post this here. My lactation consultant recommended I start taking a vitamin enzyme called acidophilus and it has been working wonders for my milk production and have been able to pump so much more. I went from an average of 4ozs to about twelve! Hope this helps other Bfing moms!

  • I saw cookies in parenting magazine that are supposed to increase milk production but they said only eat half of a cookie at a time? Really thats like telling an obese person im taking you to the buffet today but all you can have is a salad with no dressinglaughing
