How Long Should I Use Motherlove Supplements?

This is a very common question we get here at Motherlove, but there really isn't an easy answer since every mother is different. In general, this is what we recommend.

We know many mothers who have taken our supplements the entire time they breastfeed but we also know many women who have successfully weaned themselves off of the products. Both of these are perfectly fine. If you'd like to stop taking the product, we always recommend that you wean yourself off slowly and watch for any changes. For example, if you are taking 3 doses per day and have an adequate milk supply, remove 1 dose per day. Continue taking just 2 doses per day and keep an eye on your supply. If it is still adequate, remove another dose and monitor for a couple of days. If your milk supply continues to stay at a good level, then you can stop taking the product. However, if at any time you remove a dose and see a dip in your supply, we recommend adding the dose back in and staying at that level. If you stop taking your doses all at once, there is a risk that your supply will drop suddenly and it is more difficult to increase it again after that.

If at any point you have questions about our supplements, feel free to contact Motherlove directly—we are happy to help!
