These supplements can be used both short-term and long-term.
Some circumstances when customers use these supplements short-term are:
During growth baby spurts.
To recover from maternal illness, i.e a cold or mastitis.
Low supply due to temporarily hormonal dip related to menstrual cycle, we also suggest taking a calcium magnesium supplement during your menstrual cycle as it can help with the increase in estrogen that decreases milk production.
During times of stress that can negatively impact supply.
Returning to work or school.
Some circumstances when customers use these supplements long-term are:
- When relactating after an interruption in breastfeeding or pumping, or inducing lactation.
- When diagnosed with IGT (insufficient glandular tissue).
- Chronic low supply due to hormonal imbalances (i.e. thyroid, PCOS).
- Low supply related to insulin resistance.
