    Default Peppermint Tea - how much is too much?

    Hi all,
    I've recently started drinking a mug of peppermint tea before bedtime because I find it very relaxing. But I remember hearing that peppermint is one of those herbs that can decrease milk supply.
    DS is 9 months old... is one tea bag a night enough to decrease my supply? Should I stick to chamomile to be safe? It's hard to tell if my supply has gone down since I started drinking the tea since I never pump.

    I think that for a mom who is home with her baby and not having trouble pumping or with supply in general, a single mug of peppermint tea isn't going to cause any problems. Enjoy!
    Coolest thing my big girl said recently: "How can you tell the world is moving when you are standing on it?"
    Coolest thing my little girl sang recently: "I love dat one-two pupples!"

    One cup a day is fine.
