Let There Be Milk

Birth Songs Botanicals Let there be milk #Review

We made it to a year!  If you would have asked me about my expectations with nursing this time last year, I would have said "my goal is a year but I will be happy with 9 months."  Can I tell you what a lie that statement was?  I wanted so badly to make it to one year and around 9 months ironically my supply took a large dip and my body was struggling to keep up with the demand the littlest peanut was putting on me.  

I tried pretty much everything to increase my supply especially after the failure to thrive diagnosis.  So I was ELATED when Rochelle at Birth Song Botanicals contacted me to review their "Let There Be Milk" tincture. 

The packaging was beautiful and I loved the little touches of the sweet thank you note on the back of the business card as well as the magnet and of course the cute little bottle of "Let There Be Milk!"

So after adoring the wonderful packaging, I immediately jumped into taking it, there was no time to lose! Initially I followed the directions and took 20 drops.  I placed them in a shot glass (classy folks!) and downed it quickly.  Whew that was a bit of a surprise.  The taste was fine initially but I definitely had to chase it with a glass of water because the aftertaste was a bit bitter.  After that first time, I filled the shot glass 1/2 full with water and then placed the 20 drops in and took it that way.  It was MUCH better with water.  I took it three times a day and it took about 3 days to take effect.  Once it did take effect though, it was like the early days of nursing.  I was waking up engorged and needing relief, and little peanut was completely satisfied.

I was even able to build a stash for our Vegas trip!
As we are nearing the end of our nursing time, I am sad but I cannot thank Birth Songs Botanicals enough for this awesome tincture which helped me reach my goal of nothing but mama's milk for her first year!

  1. Thanks for writing about this! I have been using fenugreek which I'm not sure is working all that great. Excited to possibly try this out! :)

  3. Did you take this every day even when your milk was in? Or did you stop once your milk came in?

  4. I just bought this last week and I would like to know how everyone takes it. It's very strong, I can't take it by itself and just drink something after. I've tried mixing it in juice, but I would like to hear how other people found best to take it. Thanks for the help.
