What could be better for a baby than breast milk? And if it is too small? Involuntarily think about the question of how to increase his income. It is now I mommy with some experience, and after the birth of her first child I tried many different means. And one of them is mint. It is about her will be my story.
When milk decreases
Immediately after the birth of her daughter everything was wonderful – there was more than milk, she was eating enough, and the weight was added as it should be. But, after only six months, I was greatly alarmed and the milk noticeably diminished. I did not want to translate the kid into a mixture, and therefore I decided to try some popular recipes.
Every morning for breakfast, I ate sandwiches with hard cheese and homemade butter, biscuits, toffee-sweets with condensed milk and drank tea in English with milk. And in a couple of days I wanted to amuse myself with mint tea. The house was only last year’s peppermint, collected and dried.
Amazing Mint Tea
I brewed tea, enjoyed its menthol taste, and after 10-15 minutes I felt a strong tingling in my chest … So much milk in my chest arrived only in the first months after birth. The next day I repeated my experience – the effect was the same. However, I was afraid to abuse mint, and I did it right.
A week later, in a new magazine for moms, I read an article about mint teas. It turns out that peppermint really causes a strong addition of milk, thanks to the menthol contained in it (it helps the vessels to expand). And if you use this tea occasionally – lactation will return to normal, but its daily use leads to the opposite result.
And there is another kind of mint – curly, it is spread less than peppermint, but, fortunately, it also grew in my garden. Here from her tea, consumed daily, remarkably normalizes the process of milk production. I collected some fresh mint, dried it away from direct sunlight and brewed an incomplete teaspoon per cup of boiling water.
I forgot about the problem of lack of breast milk as a nightmare. Kushala daughter mother’s milk up to two years. Then she herself easily refused – she felt big. And the milk gradually ceased to arrive …
By the way, peppermint tea will help in the case when the baby has already refused from the breast, and the milk does not decrease.
After all, herbal teas are much better than medicines, do you agree? And you had to resort to using herbal teas?
