    Default Does More Milk Plus work?

    I am exclusively EBM feeding our 5 mo. old, but I have struggled like hell to get my supply up this much. Phuu! I'm SO glad I've made it! It would be nice though, to have a bit of a boost for spares (and in case he has another growth spurt, eep!) so who here takes/has taken this and what were the results like?

    Also, what's the difference between More Milk, More Milk Plus, and More Milk Special Blend-which one works best if anyone knows?

    I don't know about the others, but I've taken MMP in tincture form and it works, giving a mild supply boost- able to pump about 1-1.5 oz during my workday when I take it 4x per day.

    Eta that is 1 oz more than normal

    ETA = edited to add.

    IMO, supplements like MMP can help increase supply. But don't expect them to provide a substitute for hard work with the pump.

    Ahh thank you! I asked my husband about the ETA acronym and he said "estimated time of arrival" which I didn't quite think sounded right

    Thank you as well; I definitely don't think there's any way out of hard work with the pump unless by some miracle a LLL Leader or Lactation consultant moves to my area and helps me latch my baby back on, but it's nice to know there are more things out there to try...my son is just GUZZLING my milk up and when he starts needing a little more, I want to have it ready and rarin' to go
