If you are looking for herbal ways to increase your lactation – Motherlove Herbals is THE company to go to. Galactogogue herbs have been proven to increase breast milk. You can drink them in a tea form or take liquid herbal extracts or capsules of the following herbs: fenugreek, blessed thistle, nettle, anise, dill, fennel seed, goat’s rue, raspberry leaf, and alfalfa. Since I want to increase my milk supply, I turned to Motherlove for herbal supplements.

I have been testing out their Lactation Pack. It was a good way to see what versions of their lactation – inducing products I preferred. Click here to find out the differences between the various Motherlove products.

The lactation pack ($21.95) contains:

  • 1 oz. More Milk Plus Liquid Extract
  • 1 oz. Goats Rue Liquid Extract
  • Sample sizes of More Milk Plus and Goats Rue Vegetarian Capsules
  • 1/4 oz. Nipple Cream
  • 1/4 oz. Diaper Rash & Thrush Relief

With the More Milk Plus Liquid Extract added to my iced tea, you could notice the taste a little bit. And, since I am not used to taking herbal tinctures, I liked the capsules better. The company said that is a common thing – people used to taking herbal remedies prefer using liquid herbal supplements. I liked taking the More Milk Plus Vegetarian capsules (and I actually just ordered two bottles of it for my continued use). The included nipple cream and diaper rash cream have already come in handy (and were such a great small size that I can take them in my diaper bag).

Motherlove Herbals also makes great natural products for labor, delivery and baby. I also recently reviewed their fab labor and birth products, click here to read that review.
