Stress & Your Milk Supply
During the first few weeks after birth, stress can have a negative impact on milk production, causing milk supply to drop. Increased levels of the hormone cortisol, in addition to lack of sleep and taking care of a newborn baby, can cause milk supply levels to plunge. When this happens, do not stress out even more! Instead, reach for Lacti-Milk. Lacti-Milk contains herbs like oastraw to naturally reduce occasional stress reactions so mothers can relax and bond with their babies.
