5 Healthy Ways to Boost Your Breastmilk Supply

Statistically, a full 50% of women are not able to meet their breastfeeding goals. There are many reasons for this, some of which include stress, poor diet, and a lack of breastfeeding knowledge. 

Here are five tips to boost your breastmilk supply. 

1. Feed More Often

If you're wondering how to increase milk supply, know that the more your baby feeds, the more milk your breasts will be signalled to make. 


2. Ensure You are Getting Proper Rest

Get as much restorative nightly sleep as you can and nap during the day when the baby is sleeping.


3. Eat More Oats

Oats are likely the most well-known breast milk makers. After barley oats have a higher concentration of dietary beta-glucan than any other food.


4. Try Lactation Bars

Milkful bars are packed full of rich nutrients your body needs to produce a strong milk supply. Crowd favorites include Chocolate Banana Nut and Blueberry Almond Coconut. Shop for bars today!


5. Drink Water

Breastfeeding uses a large amount of water that can quickly dehydrate a nursing mom. Drink plenty of water throughout the day to ensure your milk supply has all that it needs to produce regularly.
