Boosting My Supply During the Holidays With Fairhaven Health {+ #TurkeyHop Giveaway}

I received complimentary products from Fairhaven Health to provide this review. All opinions are my own.
 
Quite often women accidentally wean their little ones during the holidays. Maybe it's because the how busy everything is or the stress. I'm not sure. My daughter was born December 9th. We managed to breastfeed through her first and second Christmas. Her first Christmas we didn't really go anywhere. It was rough anyways because she was a newborn with lip tie and I had no idea what I was doing. We made it through her second Christmas because she was kind of self weaning at that point, so she only nursed maybe 3 times a day at that point.

 
I did a post a few months back with my tips to keep up your breastmilk supply. But recently I had the opportunity to try out some great products from Fairhaven Health. Which I needed because my supply has been failing me when Peanut goes through a growth spurt. Here's what I received:

Milkies Nursing Blend-Breastfeeding Supplement: A complete postnatal vitamin plus an herbal blend to help stimulate breast milk production.
Milkies Nursing Time Tea: An herbal tea to help stimulate breast milk production.
Milkies Nipple Nurture Balm: 100% organic nipple balm.

Including the tips mentioned above, taking a Breastfeeding Supplement like the Milkies Nursing Blend can really help up your breastmilk. Basically this supplement is a blend of herbs that have been used for centuries by nursing mothers when a boost in breast milk supply is needed, including fenugreek and fennel seed. Nursing Blend is the only dietary supplement that combines herbal support for breast milk production with the vitamin and mineral support that nursing moms need to produce quality breast milk. Which is great because quality is more favorable than quantity to me.

Reasons you might need a supply boost:
1. Little one is going through a growth spurt.
2. Pumping mama going back to work.
3. Taking certain medications.
4. Little one started eating more solid foods.

I'm going to be honest I haven't tried the tea yet. I'm just not really a tea person. But the Nipple Nurture Balm is coming in handy because I don't know about you but winter = dry, cracked nipples in this house. TMI? Probably, but y'all know that's just me. :)
 
With the Holidays coming up I thought I would share two awesome packages that I think would be great for expecting or new/nursing moms. These would also make great baby shower gifts.

  46. My son has doubled his birthweight in three months, he is EBF and sometimes he definitely needs more than I can provide. I plan to breastfeed for two years, so if this works well it would be an awesome tool to have for those days when he goes through growth spurts.
