Increasing your milk supply, tips from a midwife!

Hello Franjos community!

If you don’t follow along on social media you may not have seen but my name is Aliza, I am a midwife and perinatal mental health specialist and I have recently come on board with the amazing Franjos Kitchen team!

Being a midwife, I am so passionate about everything pregnancy, birth, breastfeeding and motherhood and cannot wait to share some of my knowledge with you all in monthly blog posts!

This month we celebrated World Breastfeeding Week which we absolutely loved! As you might have guessed at Franjos, we are all very passionate about helping mamas on their breastfeeding journeys! 

I love to share tips and tricks on breastfeeding and wanted to share a wrap up of some of the best tips to increase your milk supply! Let's be real, breastfeeding isn't easy. Although it's natural and I feel like it totally should be easy, it's not. Its a learned skill from both mama and babe! So here are some tips we shared over World Breastfeeding Week for increasing your milk supply:

Tip 1: Resting… as much as you want to roll your eyes at this one, it truly is so critical for milk production, healing your body and ensuring your mental health is okay. We know how tricky that can be with a newborn baby so ask for help and remember, the dishes can wait! 

Tip 2: Hydration- breastmilk is a huge % water, so it makes sense that in order to produce breastmilk, you yourself must be hydrated. Aim to drink 3 litres a day of water, another way to optimize hydration is drinking electrolyte filled drinks such as coconut water.

Tip 3: Pumping/feeding more frequently… our bodies work through supply and demand in relation to breastmilk production. The more we ‘extract’ the more our body makes. If your baby is feeding every 3-4 hours already, think about pumping after each feed for 5-10 minutes to increase your supply. This milk can then be given to baby after their breastfed and will signal to your body to up the milk-making!

Tip 4: Eating healthy nourishing foods for your body! Optimizing your bodies nutritional intake is critical at this time of your life. Your body is working overtime (how incredible are women's bodies just quietly) to not only create, and birth a human but also nourish this little baby of yours! So love it back, with nutrient-dense, whole foods. 

Tip 5: Reducing worry and stress. This is probably the most tricky one as for various reasons new mamas can feel all kinds of stress and pressure. If you can take 15 minutes a day for yourself, do a quick meditation or breathing exercise to calm your body and mind. 

Tip 6: Skin to Skin with your beautiful baby. This means, babies naked skin (they can have a nappy on because being popped on is never a great experience), on your naked chest. Having your baby physically so close to you works some real magic! It helps your body to create all of those beautiful milk-making hormones as well as promoting bonding for you both!

Tip 7: For our last tip, to produce more milk we have… Franjoskitchen Tanker toppers- of course!! We know how effective our incredible cookies and muesli are for you beautiful mamas! Created by our beautiful naturopath to nourish you from the inside, optimizing your milk supply. Amazing hey!

But i never knew that winning was so easy with the help of Dr. OSE, until the day i meant the spell caster testimony online, which a lot of people has talked about that he is very powerful and has great powers in casting lottery spell, so i decided to give it a try. I emailed Dr. OSE and he did a spell and gave me the winning lottery special numbers 62, and co-incidentally I have be playing this same number for the past 23years without any winning, But believe me when I play the special number 62 this time and the draws were out i was the mega winner because the special 62 matched all five white-ball numbers as well as the Powerball, in the April 4 drawing to win the $70 million jackpot prize…… Dr. OSE, truly you are the best, with Dr. OSE you can will millions of money through lottery. i am a living testimony and so very happy i meant him, and i will forever be grateful to him…… you can Email him for your own winning special lottery numbers now oseremenspelltemple@gmail.com OR WHATSAPP him +2348136482342
