Supporting your milk supply with Boobie Bircher!

There are many factors that can decrease a breastfeeding mother’s milk supply. These can include;

  • Stress
  • Anxiety
  • Lack of quality sleep
  • Hormone imbalances
  • Separation from child (e.g. returning to work)
  • Inadequate nutrition
  • Inadequate water intake
  • Another pregnancy

Sometimes these factors are, unfortunately, unavoidable. Particularly when a mother is being woken during the night by a demanding baby, or is required to return to work during the breastfeeding period. There are, however, some steps you can take in regards to your nutrition to bolster your milk supply. This Boobie Bircher recipe can be made in bulk at the start of the week, providing support for the busiest of lactating mothers.

Oats are one of the most important foods a breastfeeding mother can incorporate for increasing their supply. They’re packed full of vitamins and minerals for boosting energy levels and relieving anxiety, as well as estrogens and saponins known for balancing hormones.
