Lactation tea dosage?

I just got my Milkmaid tea from earth mama angel baby. How often am I supposed to drink this? I *think* I read somewhere that it's 3 cups a day but I'm not sure and there are no instructions on the box.
Thanks!

I got a box of that tea over the weekend & I believe it says 1 or 2 cups a day. I've been drinking just 1 cup a day and have noticed a difference.

The same as you, I believe. I bought it at BRU. It looks like this:

Yeah that's the one I got. I didnt see instructions? maybe I missed it.
Good to know BRU has it. I got a coupon with my order, but it has to be used in-store. thanks!

Oh cool!! We should meet up PM me if your interested. They're aren't instructions as to how many to drink but I did some googling and from what people said, about 2-3 cups a day depending on how low or how much BM ya want/need. I've been just drinking 1 cup a day and I've noticed an increase in the morning.

Thanks. I ended up calling them. There is no magic number or dosage. So I understand but I'm still confused. I'm due in 3 weeks. I'm having a c-section so I kind of want to help my body along. I didnt produce a whole lot of milk with DD so anything to help this time. I might start off with 1 cup and work my way up if I need more.

Re: Lactation tea dosage?

I understand. I didn't BF either of my older son's. They were both 36wkers so they didn't know how to latch and had a hard time and so they both were formula fed, but I pumped with my first for about 8 months and he got that on top of formula, but I only pumped about 2oz at a time, so not much. My second son was given pumped milk for the first 2 weeks but needed soy formula so I stopped pumping. My third son, he was induced at 38+2 wks because I had low fluid and came out wanting to nurse, and so far so good. He'll be 3 months on Saturday, I just bought the tea to help of course, that way if I wanted to pump I had extra to do so So I completely understand the whole not producing enough.

Re: Lactation tea dosage?

They told me with my first c-section, that since your body doesnt go thru the whole birthing process, it could take a bit longer for the milk to come in. So I am planning on bring the tea to the hospital and drinking it from the beginning. Now that I think about it, if I want to help my supply come in, maybe I should start with 3 cups and work my way down?
What do you think?

Does anyone know if I start out using the tea, what are the chances my supply will be dependent on it?
