More Milk Plus might be a miracle :)

Just sayin!

I had a significant drop in my supply over the last few weeks as a result of a nasty illness I had :/.  I wasn't quite making enough milk for Leo, and he's now allergic to regular formula and Alumentum type formulas.  We are having to place him on Neocate now (not insuranceable :/) so I watned to give him as much of the "free" stuff as I possibly could!

I had tried almost everything these last few weeks including taking pills upon pills of Blessed Thistle and Fenugreek with NO results :/.  I was getting mighty discouraged.

But someone and my pediatrician recommended "More Milk Plus by Motherlove and I took it ONCE and my supply increased.  Glad I didn't take too much more because I would go by to my oversupply days LOL.  It did wear off today and I took another dose, and my supply immediately went up LOL.

It does taste mighty strong. It says to not take with liquids, but didn't say anything about food.....so I ate something with it and it helped with the taste :)

So proud of all I have....My big boy Caden and my little Leo.

Best to place the dropper close to the back of your mouth to avoid as much of the nasty taste as possible. Take it as directed...every 6 hours I think. It works miracles!!!

Is it an over the counter? And where did you get it?

Yep, it is over the counter. But, you can really only find it at health food stores.  I found mine at Whole Foods :)

I tried it and I just couldn't handle it...maybe it was the alcohol in it?? I never drink so I was soooo not prepared
I had to go back and order the pills instead..hopefully those will help
BUT I do have to say the two times I was able to gag it down I noticed an increase within a few hours so it DOES work..but hoooboy is it nasty

I KNOW!  It practically knocks me out!  But when I'm low I just deal with it.

Ialso noticed when I eat Quaker Oats (I usually have Cinnamon and Spice or Raisins and Spice) my milk production goes way up too.  I know you are supposed to do steel cut oats, but heck....that does enough for me LOL.
