Re: Oh Lawd! Trader Joes Peppermint Candies/Milk Supply Decrease??

Blessed thistle and fenugreek are the ones that come to mind.

Increase water supply. Are you fatigued?

How many did you eat? No judgement just trying to figure out if that really was the issue.

You won't have to take it forever just until it increase. Make some lactation cookies to curb that sweet craving.

So many. Like a box each day! Haha! 3 boxes. That's the only thing I can think of. I have nursed 3 other than this one. I've gone through a lot of emotional adn physical turmoil with every one and this has never happened.

Oatmeal helped me.

Why do you think it's the cookies? At that age I would think maybe your cycle is coming back which often means a temporary--but sometimes drastic, supply drop.

Peppermint is known to decrease supply, so if say yes that is the culprit.

Increase your water I take, eat oatmeal, or lactation cookies to help get your supply back up and once it's back up to normal it should stay that way.

Oh I didn't know that! I don't tend to eat much peppermint though.

Haha! Not laughing at you but I can totally see this accidentally happening. Yes, maybe that did it but you can get it back up. Just hydrate, if you take the supplements you'll see that works quickly. It kind of made me hot/flushed feeling.

Re: Oh Lawd! Trader Joes Peppermint Candies/Milk Supply Decrease??

I had alot more issues with supply with my second than my first (which was shocking to me since I figured it would be easier) I was 34/35 so not all that old either.

No idea of the cookies could cause the decrease but LOTS of water and try not to stress overly. Oatmeal worked for me too.

It could of been worse. You could have eaten a whole box of sugar free candy. Apparently that keeps you in the bathroom all day.

Luckily, I knew this before trying sugar free candy.
