? About supplements

Does anybody take these as a "preventative" measure? DS is 7 weeks old and nursing is going great. Just the evenings can get tiring with the cluster feeding and I can tell he gets frustrated that the flow is slower but otherwise he has plenty of wet/poopy dipes and is gaining really well so I know he's getting plenty.

I was thinking of taking one of the mothers milk tinctures just to help with the evening time.

You can just drink some mother's milk tea, drink lots of water and make sure to take good care of yourself and you should be just fine.

Also keep in mind that most moms have more milk flow in the mornings and less in the evenings.
