Is it true that raspberry leaf tea increases supply?My supply has gone down thanks to thrush so I need to up my supply but can not have things like oatmeal since it affects the yeast same with dairy and stuff.

Fenugreek and Blessed Thistle are herbs for increasing milk supply. Both can be found in Mother's Milk Tea or taken in capsule form. Look up "galactagogues" on kellymom.com for information on dosage, etc. Are you and the baby both being treated for thrush? Kellymom has info on thrush as well.

Raspberry leaf tea doesn't increase supply, but it does enrich the milk. So not a bad thing to drink anyway. If you can I would do a nursing vacation, or pump after feeding to increase supply.

Thanks!I have the cream for my nipples,take acidophilus daily and have cut out every food that feeds the yeast.I went through this before and it did work.I don't take medications since I know how bad they are.

It won't decrease my supply will it?I have done research and read that it can up it and have read that it will decrease it.I was taking it when pregnant but stopped as I was not sure.Im tandem nursing my 31 month old and 5 week old so I think I'm good with that lol my supple was amazing before the thrush and my letdown was fast too but since the thrush it has decreased alot.Its not satisfying my baby nor older Breastfeeding child.I know it will get back!

It won't decrease it. Red raspberry tea shouldn't affect the supply at all. I've had the best luck with fenugreek, but I bet your supply will come back pretty quick.

Red raspberry leaf tea won't hurt. It doesn't enrich the milk; nothing does that. But per kellymom it does assist in letdown (something new I learned tonight).

It also counts toward your daily liquid quota.
