After breastfeeding four babies, I’ve discovered the best lactation supplement on the market, and it is the only supplement I drink for milk supply. Since drinking this lactation supplement, my milk supply has come in faster (way faster, read this!), and I’ve had so much milk for my fourth baby. Let me tell you, this lactation supplement isn’t just a supplement, but an overall nutritional boost that will nourish your body, help you lose weight, and it tastes amazing! If you’ve been following me in Instagram, or reading my blog for a while, you probably already know the drink I’ve been drinking to keep my milk supply up, as I am just 2 weeks postpartum now. And yes, this lactation drink helped me drop 12lbs in 10 days, and even more now that I am 14 days postpartum. Let’s get into the fun details on why this lactation drink is…

I am about 8 days postpartum now, and I was so happy to see my milk start coming in about 4 days postpartum. Breastfeeding in the first couple of days can feel useless because it doesn’t seem like anything is coming out. The newborn keeps sucking and practicing latching, for what appears to be nothing. With each baby, I was always anxiously waiting for my milk to come in. With my fourth baby, it came in by about 4 days postpartum, which was a bit faster than my other three. I thought it would be helpful if I went over my steps in the hospital and at home that were a little different with this baby, which I think made a difference in how fast my milk supply came in. you might also like: How I Lost 12 lbs By 10 Days Postpartum Keep Baby “Nursing” As Much As Possible: As…

I remember with my second baby, we were working on latching a few hours after birth. I was feeling fairly “pro” because I breastfed my first for over a year. Still, she had some awesome latching tricks that really helped, and I didn’t know! I’ve learned that in motherhood, you are never…

Eating smart is so important for breastfeeding and postpartum weight loss. It can literally make or break your milk supply. Our bodies are designed to thrive off of nutrients from the foods we eat.
