    Default black tea and milk supply

    I love black tea with milk. Have abstaied for all of my pregnancy and only recently have started drinking a little coffee. I am battling a supply issue currently.
    Does black tea mess with milk supply ? (I love it with oodles of milk and find that it gives me some "me" time )

    I think I read somewhere that drinking black tea increased supply

    but don't quote me on that . . . I'm going to go and find where I saw that... be back with a link shortly


    ETA: sorry, ...it was an opionoin board http://www.inspire.com/groups/preemi...t-milk-supply/ I don't know if there is any merit to it or not. The comment about the black tea is about half way down the page by a poster named Anna5

    I remember hearing the opposite, but Kellymom says that's a myth also...
