At BBTC we appreciate that becoming a Mum can be a huge transition. Why not make it a little smoother by sipping on BBTCs Nursing tea that helps to support lactation and promote healthy milk flow. Creating harmony between you and your baby during breastfeeding is key and this specialised herbal formula will help you to achieve this. For maximum benefit enjoy 3-5 cups daily and consume only after birth while breastfeeding.
Nursing has been designed to assist with-: increasing breast milk production for mums with low milk supply; aiding digestion for mum and bub and reducing symptoms of colic; and, nourishing the nervous system to keep mum and bub calm and relaxed. Goats Rue (Galega Officinalis)- Renowned for its benefits to breastfeeding women, Goats Rue is considered in herbal medicine to be a galactogogue, a key herb that can help to increase the supply of breast milk. Perfect as part of a nursing blend for a Mum who has a low supply. Alfalfa (Medicago sativa)- Alfalfa is also a galactagogue with a slightly milder action, but in addition is highly nutritious containing many vitamins, minerals and antioxidants to benefit a nursing mother and her baby. Nettle (Urtica dioica)- Nettle has been commonly used in women after childbirth to treat Anaemia, as it is particularly high in iron so can help to build the blood and fight postpartum fatigue. Nettle also has a galactogogue action and may hel p to increase breast milk production in women with a low supply. Aniseed (Pimpinella Anisum) and Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare)- Along with the other herbs in NURSING, Aniseed and Fennel seeds have been used throughout history as galactagogues and can be helpful to maintain a constant milk flow and treat clogged ducts or other problems in the mammary glands. Additionally, they can be beneficial to help treat babies with colic or gassiness, as their active constituents can pass directly through the breast milk to the baby. Lemon balm (Melissa officinalis)- A key herb for stress, anxiety and insomnia, BBTCs NURSING is completed with a sprinkling of Lemon balm to help support a nursing mother by restoring the nervous system and encouraging relaxation, that will in turn improve milk flow and production. These nervous system benefits can also be passed on to the baby directly via the breast milk along with Lemon Balms actions to help relieve colic and gassiness.
