Hey All 💓

Oftentimes, I was asked questions regarding how do I keep my milk supply enough for my little ones beside pumping regularly and constant direct feeding. It's a challenging journey and I know some might want to give up after exclusively breastfeeding your little one for the required 6 months.

Please know that breastfeeding isn’t for everyone and many parents choose to forgo breastfeeding for a number of reasons, both personal and medical, and that’s perfectly okay.

As long as you are comfortable with whatever you choose.  You do you, no judgment.

I for one, will definitely try my very best to breastfeed my children up until 2 years old. Well, that's my personal goal for my breastfeeding journey but all depends on your capability to endure the stress, pain and maintaining the milk supply too. 


The thing is, breast milk production works on demand. The more you feed, the more milk you’ll make. It’s why experts recommend feeding your baby on demand while your milk establishes.

When you’re busy, exhausted, and trying to comfort your baby, eating a nutritious meal isn’t very high on the priority list. I get that too. You are not alone. Don't stress out as this too can cause your milk supply to decrease.

The most important thing you need to remember is to take a lot of water to replenish yourself every time you’ve pumped or breastfeed. Staying hydrated while breastfeeding is important.

Direct feed, do the skin to skin method, offering both breasts at each feed, feeding regularly throughout the night and pumping when necessary can also help.

Hence, if you have done all the above, you might want to find another alternative to help increase your lactation supply.

For women who want to increase their milk production, there are lots of options to try. Good food and healthy drink is a great way to boost milk supply and promote overall health.

Plus, it can be delicious, nutritious and calming while increasing your milk supply , especially if we’re talking about healthy cookies and caffeine-free tea.

If you're looking to maintain your breast milk supply or increase a low supply, an herbal caffeine-free breastfeeding tea may sound like a great idea. But here's the million dollar question, do lactation cookies and teas actually increase breastmilk supply?

They can help, absolutely, BUT they won’t be able to treat true low milk supply but that doesn't stop us from trying our best to find that suitable solution to our dilemma.


You can choose to make your own tea by using the herbs that you prefer or the ones that work the best for you. If you do prepare your own blend, make sure you purchase high-quality herbs from a reliable source.

The common breastfeeding herbs for nursing teas that I know are fenugreek, thistle, fennel, nettle, alfalfa, milk thistle, anise, marshmallow root, red raspberry leaf,  and verbena

Combining herbs that increase breast milk production with herbs that support relaxation and others that provide a pleasant flavor can create a tasty, soothing blend. A way for mommies to de-stress, calm and express more quality and productive milk supply. 

I even made my own herbal tea made from fenugreek, red dates, fennel and raisin. It works for me but it's a bit of a hassle to make them. 


If you do not wish to make your own, you can purchase a commercially prepared nursing tea at a grocery store, pharmacy or online. And the recent brand that I've discovered is quite tasty, flavourful and the best thing is it does increase my milk supply on the daily.


20 sachet tea bags per pack

This rich but caffeine-free tea combines earthy beetroot with sweet Ceylon cinnamon, cleansing nettle and juicy berry flavours. A beautifully balanced blend which is just the thing for new mamas and mammas-to-be.


Organic cinnamon (39%), organic chamomile (19%), organic fennel (13%), organic beetroot (12%), organic orange peels (7%), organic nettle (6%), organic blackcurrant (2%), organic blueberries (2%)

And undoubtedly  another lactation saviour that I have come across is from lactation cookies.

RUUAH _by pensive bakers.

RUUAH is derived from the Malay word ‘ melimpah-ruah’ which means ‘ bountiful’ or ‘abundance’. Made with organic ingredients with NO artificial preservatives to help nursing moms to boost milk supply, naturally. 

RUUAH lactation cookies has 2 flavours of choice which is Caramel Cookies (Subtle, warm and comforting) and Chocolate Cookies ( Rich, decadent and indulgent)

Ingredients are organically sourced and mainly healthful such as Oats, Flaxseeds, Chia Seeds, Virgin Coconut Oil, Dates, Brewer’s yeast and Fennel Seeds.

RUUAH’s Cookies are great to :

  • Boost a breastfeeding mom’s milk supply

  • Improve the quality of breastmilk

  • Provide nutrition and energy 

  • Highly nutritious snacks for everyone; young or old regardless gender. 

  • Great for growing children’s physical and brain development

  • Excellent source of fibre, energy and protein

I’ve tried the Caramel cookies and it doesn't taste that bad. Yes, mind you the slight smell of the herbs might turn you off but the taste covered with the caramel taste is quite delicious and appetising. Even my kids love to eat them!

With all your effort of trying out all the methods, if the herb blends in these teas and cookies aren’t effective at triggering more milk production for you and research isn’t clear if it scientifically does increase milk supply.

Drinking extra liquid several times a day will help keep you hydrated . Unquestionably the key to good milk production. 

Plus, taking time to care for yourself, which can release the relaxed, loving hormones shown to be beneficial to milk productions. Your little one will love and appreciate it~~

However, if you find a source you feel comfortable with, consume a normal amount, and make sure to avoid any allergens, you will have gotten some extra hydration and nutrients and possibly a blissful moment to yourself!

Breastfeeding is a unique experience and a personal journey. Enjoy your moment with your little one in your own sweet way and take good care of yourself FIRST . That’s the number one priority !

Take care and have a great breastfeeding adventure !!
