What is a galactogogue?2018-11-19T21:22:31+00:00

A galactogogue is a substance that promotes breast milk production. Nursing Blend contains several herbs that have been used traditionally as galactogogues, including fenugreek, fennel, and coriander.

Do I need to take a multivitamin supplement while nursing?2018-11-19T21:22:56+00:00

Yes! Because the nutritional needs of breastfeeding women are similar to those of pregnant women, most health care providers recommend that nursing moms continue to take a multivitamin. This extra vitamin and mineral support helps to ensure that you get enough the key nutrients needed to safeguard your health and produce plentiful and nutritious breast milk.

Are the herbs in Nursing Blend safe for my baby?2018-11-19T21:23:22+00:00

Nursing Blend contains fenugreek, fennel seed, coriander seed, anise seed, chamomile, and vervain. Each of these herbs has been used for safely centuries in cooking and/or traditional medicine.

Why do Nursing Blend and Nursing Postnatal contain 700% Daily Value of Vitamin D?2018-11-19T21:23:46+00:00

That does seem like a lot of Vitamin D, right? But, it is important to know that Vitamin D deficiency is very common among women and children, and many experts believe that the current Daily Value for Vitamin D (only 400 IU) is not sufficient to maintain Vitamin D levels at a healthy level. Once believed to be important only for bone health, recent research shows that Vitamin D plays a role in the prevention of a wide range of health conditions, including high blood pressure, osteoporosis, depression, obesity, breast cancer, diabetes, multiple sclerosis, and rheumatoid arthritis. By providing 700% Daily Value of Vitamin D, Nursing Postnatal helps to increase circulating levels of Vitamin D in nursing women, thereby ensuring that the breast milk produced by these women will have enough Vitamin D to prevent suboptimal Vitamin D status in their growing babies.

Why does Nursing Blend contain fenugreek seed powder and fenugreek seed extract?2018-11-19T21:24:06+00:00

Nursing Blend is designed to quickly and naturally increase your breast milk supply. One of the primary ingredients in Nursing Blend is fenugreek, which is the most well-known herb for promoting breast milk production. One of the complaints we hear from women about taking fenugreek, however, is that it is often necessary to take many capsules per day to experience a boost in breast milk supply. With that in mind, we created Nursing Blend to providing a unique combination of whole fenugreek seed powder along with a concentrated fenugreek seed extract. As a result, Nursing Blend offers an equivalent dose of 2 grams of fenugreek in each daily dose (only 3 capsules)!

How soon after starting Nursing Blend will I see an increase in my supply?2018-11-19T21:24:29+00:00

Most moms begin to see an increase in their breast milk supply within 72 hours of starting Nursing Blend. But, of course, moms are like snowflakes – no two are the same – so results do vary!

Can I take Nursing Blend and Nursing Postnatal together?2018-11-19T21:24:58+00:00

Great question! Because both Nursing Blend and Nursing Postnatal contain a full multivitamin targeted to the needs of nursing women, it is not necessary to take both. This begs the question: which product do I choose? If you are looking for a boost in your breast milk supply, along with vitamin and mineral support, choose Nursing Blend. Nursing Blend contains a blend of herbs that help support breast milk production. If your supply is sufficient, and you are looking only for a multivitamin supplement, Nursing Postnatal is the product for you!

Nursing Time Tea

What is in Nursing Time Tea?2018-11-19T21:48:35+00:00

Nursing Time Tea contains a combination of organic and wild-crafted herbs, designed to boost your breast milk supply and provide hydration and nutritional support. It includes fennel seed, goat’s rue, blessed thistle, alfalfa, anise seed, and lemon verbena.

Can I drink Nursing Time Tea and and also take Nursing Blend?2018-11-19T21:49:20+00:00

Yes! Combining the two products is perfectly safe!

Why does Nursing Time Tea taste so good?2018-11-19T21:49:50+00:00

Its an unfortunate fact that many of the herbs that are champs when it comes to increasing breast milk supply are losers when it comes to pleasing the palate. That’s why some of the other available nursing teas get a thumbs down from moms where flavor is concerned. Our herbalist is never one to be satisfied with a bad tasting tea, so, in addition to including herbs to increase your breast milk supply, she included herbs specifically to enhance the flavor of Nursing Time Tea. The result is a supply-boosting and refreshing tea with a delicious, lemony flavor. Oh, and feel free to add honey or sweetener to Nursing Time Tea if that suits your fancy!

How do I brew Nursing Time Tea?2018-11-19T21:50:20+00:00

Nursing Time Tea is a loose leaf tea. To brew one cup of Nursing Time Tea, place 1 teaspoon of tea in a tea ball or infuser. Add boiling water, cover and let steep for 5 minutes. Be sure to strain out any leaves before drinking.

How many cups of Nursing Time Tea should I drink each day?2018-11-19T21:50:48+00:00

Nipple Nurture Balm

Do I need to wipe off the nipple balm before feeding my baby?2018-11-19T21:54:01+00:00

Does Nipple Nurture Balm contain lanolin?2018-11-19T21:56:19+00:00

Nipple Nurture Balm is lanolin-free! Because many women are allergic to lanolin, we chose to create a 100% organic, lanolin-free nipple cream.

What are the ingredients in Nipple Nurture Balm?2018-11-19T21:56:58+00:00

Our Nipple Nurture Balm contains a total of six ingredients: marshmallow root, self heal, calendula, extra virgin olive oil, beeswax, and shea butter. That’s it! No artificial colors, preservatives, or lanolin! All of the ingredients are organic and edible – safe for you and baby!
