Experiencing Decreased Milk Supply?
Nursing mothers often questioned if their milk supply is keeping up with their baby’s needs. Fortunately, God made women’s bodies equipped to feed their young the best possible nutrients; perfectly balanced for baby’s precious and extraordinary bodies.
However, there are still times when the mother’s milk supply may run low…
- Taking certain medications: Active ingredients in cold medicines, pseudoephedrine, and some allergy medications have been reported to slow milk production.
- Issues with pumping: If you work, travel, or simply get caught up running errands around town, you might find yourself missing pumping sessions. If this is the main way of providing your baby her much needed nutrients, and sessions are skipped, this could cause a decrease in production.
- Not getting enough rest: Tiredness from a newborn and labor is expected, but there are times when tiredness crosses over to exhaustion for an extended period, resulting in lower supply.
- Stress: Not only can emotional and physical stress interfere with let-down, is has been linked to decrease milk supply. Anxiety and pain can also add difficulties to breast feeding and milk production.
- Gaps in nutrition and diet: Water intake and liquids impact milk production. While a mother’s body can amazingly still produce milk while having nutritional gaps, it can cost mom her own health.
Natural and safe ways to keep or increase milk supply…
- Ask your doctor or pharmacist about the effects of any medication on milk supply.
- Try adding another pumping or feeding into your day.
- Adequate rest can be difficult, but is much needed. Even if you don’t sleep while the baby is sleeping, try to at least rest, not doing much physical work and relax your body.
- If stress is interfering, talk to a friend, professional, or doctor. Try not to add unnecessary stress to your life, especially during the first few months of having a baby.
- Drinking plenty of liquids and eating healthy is always a good plan, especially when supplying a baby with his or her main nutrients.
