If you’re not producing quite enough milk, looking down the path of herbal supplements may be beneficial in order to promote a higher supply. While there are some methods such as taking milk thistle capsules and adding more garlic to your diet, simply changing how you have your tea may be an easier option. Here are three herbal teas to make to help promote milk production while breastfeeding.


Fenugreek Seeds

Fenugreek tea is great for short-term herbal tea. It has been shown to provide results within 24 and 72 hours and once you are back on track with your desired milk production, you can stop using it. It is also beneficial when it comes to easing the the the side effects of menopause, diabetes, and menstruation pain. You can also find fenugreek in the form of capsules or powders if needed.

Chamomile

If chamomile is already your favorite tea, you’re in luck because it’s not only safe for you and baby, but it also has anti-stress properties. Add some unsweetened almond milk to your tea to make it a nice relaxing treat before bed.

Anise/ Aniseed

Anise seed tea has a warm licorice flavor and because it contains anethole, it produces effects similar to estrogen. Anise can be used in cooking and it also comes as a syrup. Brew this tea with non-dairy milk of your choice to mellow the flavor if licorice isn’t your favorite. This is not to be confused with anise stars, which SHOULD NOT be ingested while pregnant or breastfeeding.

Before trying any new herbal supplement (including herbal teas) it is best to start slowly and to consult with a doctor to make sure that you only ingest what is needed for you and baby. Drinking or ingesting too many herbs may have a negative effect. There are also pre-made nursing teas on the market that you can find such as Earth Mama Angel Baby Organics’ Milkmaid Nursing Tea.
