How has Feelgood Nature’s Milk Drops helped others?
‘I was very worried about whether I would be able to breastfeed successfully as I have seen how some of my friends with babies had to give up because their milk just didn’t seem to be enough. I know they always say to keep trying but I think it just became too frustrating and traumatic for them to see their babies hungry and not being able to feed them properly. I really wanted my son to have all the advantages of breastfeeding and decided to try your Nature’s Milk product. I was really thrilled with the results as I seemed to have a good supply of colostrum, and then milk, from the outset. The relief of being able to bond with my child in this special way without the anxiety and difficulties I was expecting was great. Thank you so much for a natural product that really works!’
– Anita P.
Your Nature’s Milk remedy is fantastic- for the first few days after giving birth, I had very little milk and was beginning to feel stressed out and desperate. My midwife recommended your product and within 48 hours my milk flow really took off! Thanks for such a great range of products that really help women like me!’ – Caitlin
Helpful questions and answers about breastfeeding
How do I know when my baby is getting enough milk?
For a few days after delivery, you will produce only small amounts of a thin watery substance which is known as colostrum. Colostrum is crucial for your baby’s first meals even though it may seem to be a small amount. Once your mature milk comes in (on about the third day after birth), you can expect 4-6 wet disposable nappies/diapers (One or two more if you use cloth diapers.) and 3 or 4 bowel movements in 24 hours. This will usually show that your baby is getting a perfectly adequate volume of milk.
Can I fall pregnant while I am breastfeeding?
Even though fertility is decreased and you may not even be menstruating, there is still a possibility of conceiving while breast-feeding. For many parents with a brand new little one in the house, falling pregnant again so soon is unthinkable! For these parents, it is important to use a reliable method of birth control from the very first time you resume sexual intercourse. Of course, if you and your partner feel ready to conceive again then no form of contraception is necessary.
Can I practice a combination of breastfeeding and formula feeding?
Some women would love to breast-feed exclusively but for some reason are unable to do this. There are a number of options for mothers who work or are separated from their infant regularly. You may be able to express or “pump” milk and store it in a bottle for later feeding. Otherwise, combination feeding of both breast milk and formula is also a possibility. Although your baby will not receive 100% of the benefits of exclusive breastfeeding, this method still has great advantages over formula feeding only. If you decide to practise combination feeding during the first few months, this may decrease milk production as your body will ‘notice’ that the demand for milk is less. Regular use of Nature’s Milk Drops during this time will help to keep your milk production up.
My breasts hurt. What is wrong and what can I do about it?
Painful breasts can occur amongst breastfeeding moms for one of several reasons. Mastitis (infection of the breast) will cause pain, swelling, redness and warmth of the breast and should be seen to by your health care provider as soon as possible. Breasts may also become sore and tender when the flow of milk is blocked and the breast becomes engorged. Sometimes the breasts may become tender after an illness when you’re under stress or very busy, or for no apparent reason at all. This often happens during the early days of breastfeeding while your body is still establishing how much breastfeeding will be needed. ‘Demand feeding’ your baby will help nature to work out how much milk you need to produce and this, in turn, should settle your milk supply and relieve fluctuations in milk production. You can ease painful or tender breasts by expressing milk if they are engorged and your baby has had enough, having a hot shower, placing warm compresses on the breasts and massaging the breasts gently from under the arm to the nipple. Applying a raw cabbage leaf under a warm cloth to the breast is an ‘old wives tale’ or home remedy which also works very well!
Feelgood Tips: What else can I do to help successful breastfeeding?
- If you are having trouble breastfeeding, firstly know that you are not alone. Breast-feeding is a skill to be learnt and doesn’t come naturally to many women. Problems with latching your baby, technique and milk volume are extremely common. A breastfeeding consultant will be able to help you with difficulties of technique and positioning as well as provide support, advice and encouragement. If your milk supply seems low, perseverance is also key as the frequent suckling action of your baby nursing will actually stimulate your body to produce more milk.
- Try to get as much rest as possible by sleeping when your baby is taking a nap. Make resting your priority and don’t worry too much about housework at this stage.
- Paying attention to your diet and nutrition levels is especially important if you are breastfeeding. Eat plenty of fresh, nutritious and raw fruit and vegetables, sufficient good quality protein and healthy non-processed carbohydrates. Don’t forget to drink at least 8 glasses of preferably filtered or natural spring water daily. Avoid caffeine, chocolate, excess sugar and alcohol as these could contribute toward colic.
- The investment into getting it right will be worth it in terms of the future health of your child as well as the opportunity to create that special, deep bond with your baby.
- Remember that the Ask Us team is always there to help with free email support on health matters, including breastfeeding and the health of your baby!
