Thread: Brown Sugar Pop Tarts

  1. #1

    Lightbulb Brown Sugar Pop Tarts

    Okay, I know this is strange.. Everytime that my milk seems to get low, I eat brown sugar Pop Tarts and I can produce a ton more. I just pumped 4 oz, after eating 2 of them this morning for breakfast. Yesterday I couldn't pump 10ml in the morning!! I know that it's not the healthiest breakfast; but it's nice to know that I'm not drying up!!

    If anyone else wants to try this and let me know the result, I would appreciate it. I am curious if it is actually the Pop Tarts that are increasing my milk production, or if it's just coincidental.


    Thanks!

    I'll pick some up today. I have a perfectly good supply, but it's easily stimulated by herbs, for example, and I'm pumping and know about how much I should get at each session, so we'll know if this is the case.

    I'll have to beat my kids off as I never buy PopTarts

    Thanks! I never used to buy them either, but one day I had a craving and picked some up. That's when I realized that they seem to help me produce more milk. I wonder if it's the starch or sugar content????

    I have nothing to add except I was totally addicted to those when I was pg with DS1. Hey, if it works, keep on keepin' on! Maybe your body needed the extra calorie boost!

    Well, I think it's a fluke I have eaten 3 -- 2 yesterday and then some this AM, and I'm pumping the same as usual. Bummer. I'll keep trying

    I am trying to find out if pumpkin or apricot empanadas will increase my supply. No reason to think they will, but that is my story and I am sticking to it.
