Photo above: My milk supply before Teami Nursing, and my milk supply after!
A good friend of mine reached out to me about the new Nursing Tea from Teami. I’ve tried some of there other teas in the past and absolutely loved them and at this point I thought WHY NOT try something else and see if it actually helps. One thing that I noticed right off the bat was the taste was A LOT better than other milk tea’s so we were already off to a good start. I didn’t really start noticing anything with my supply until after the second day of drinking the tea and that night I saw the difference.
After bathtime and a full belly it was bedtime for Carter. He did nurse off one boob but he fell asleep before I could switch him to the other so after we put him down for bed I went ahead and pumped on the other side. I pumped a solid 5 ounces. I honestly could’ve cried because I’ve only been pumping 2-3 each session between feedings.
Do you know how good it feels to know that there is an all natural product that can boost your milk supply just by simply drinking a tea?! The reason it hit home so hard for me is because I’m right at six months.. pediatricians and lactation consultants have told me that by the time you reach six months your milk supply is pretty much established and with mine being very low I was getting discouraged and started feeling like I should stop and let my boobs dry up but that also made me very emotional.
I feel like I’ve honestly found what I’ve been looking for and now it’s possible for me to be able to breast-feed Carter for at least a little bit longer and I can even rely on my body more while we’re out and about knowing that I have a better supply if he became hungry. It’s an amazing feeling.
Now if only we can begin to normalize breast-feeding so women like me don’t have to feel pressured to go to the car, to find a private place or to leave where they are at the time to feed their baby because of how others would feel about it. It’s the most natural and normal thing... I mean a long time ago breastfeeding was the only option.... our bodies create it for a reason so why has it become such a burden on the public? We can change this..... and we should change this..... let’s normalize it together! Teami Nursing has changed the game, now it's our turn!
