Breast milk is the most important food a child can receive in the first months of life.
Decades of research have shown that breast milk is a unique substance that cannot be duplicated by artificial means. It is the most complete food for babies as it contains the perfect balance of nutrients that are essential for a baby’s growth and development, and provides protection against many illnesses and infections.
Many experts, including the American Academy of Pediatrics (AAP) and the World Health Organization (WHO), recommend that women breastfeed for one year or longer; and that babies take only breast milk for the first six months of life, thereafter slowly introducing solid foods.

Our safe and effective herbal formulas with certified organic herbs increase a mother’s milk supply within 24-48 hours. However, low breast milk can be a result of many factors.
