BREASTFEEDING TIPS

DID YOU KNOW…low levels of essential fatty acids may decrease your milk supply? The basic vitality supplements offer the perfect amounts of essential omega fatty acids to help with this. If you feel your body is craving more, you can add extra omega three’s to your daily routine. They have the best source for your fatty acids. Continue reading for breastfeeding tips.

You may wonder what essential oils are safe to take while breastfeeding; peppermint is the one I recommend to stay away from because it may decrease your milk supply so you will want to avoid it while breastfeeding. You can safely take the metabolic blend while PREGNANT, it may be very helpful when you are trying to cut sugars and eat healthy, but keep in mind it has peppermint in it, so while it is safe to take, you will want to see how your body responds to it while BREASTFEEDING. Other blends with peppermint in them are usually okay to use because the amount of peppermint is so small, it generally will not have any negative effect on milk supply, that being said, everyone is different so just see how your body responds.

If you feel the need to increase milk supply take two to three drops fennel and or copaiba internally three to four times a day in a veggie capsule and apply two to three drops basil topically on the breast avoiding the nipple area (diluted 1.1 ratio if you desire).  Apply three to four times a day after nursing. You should notice an increase by the next day, when an increase is noticed, no need to continue copaiba, fennel and basil. This is not meant to be a continuous routine, just a boost when needed. Drink plenty of water and a nutrient rich diet.

Breastfeeding Tips

  • Nurse as often as you can to help bring up the supply and demand.

    The vitality pack has peppermint in it so shouldn’t it be avoided when breastfeeding?

      There is so little peppermint in it that you shouldn’t have any problems with milk supply taking the LLV while breastfeeding.
