Motherlove Review & Giveaway *CLOSED*



You've seen Motherlove here on my blog last summer when I reviewed their Pregnant Belly Salve. I loved that salve. I used it daily within my pregnancy. I still got some stretchmarks, but just a few and I feel it significantly helped me. I was a LOT bigger with Emerson than with Avery and I gained more than double, so I'm sure I would've gotten a LOT more stretchmarks than if I hadn't used Belly Salve.

This time around I received the More Milk Plus. I have a low supply and I wanted this to pick it back up again.
In the beginning I was pumping 4-6oz at a time, but was only pumping 3 times a day. That was my mistake. I knew my supply would go down, I just didn't think I 'believed' it would you know. 
Well it certainly did. It went down to 1oz at a time. So from 15oz a day to 3oz a day is SIGNIFICANT! 

So I contacted them about their more milk+. They sent it to me and I took my first dose immediately. You take 4 doses a day. Once you're pumping more and are happy with your supply you can stop taking it. 

It worked for me. Instead of getting 1oz the next morning, I got 1.75oz. Instead of 3/4oz at my next session I got 1.25oz. So for it to add .5oz per session was great for me. 
I started pumping more and more and started taking 5 doses a day. 
I was back up to 3oz at a time... Then we all got sick with a cold. Emerson was so clingy and needed to be back in the wrap, so now I'm starting all over again. 

I'm taking it 4 times a day currently and am trying to pump at least 6 times a day. I'm slowly getting back up there. I was at 1oz in the morning and .5oz the rest of the day! Now I'm at about 3/4oz each time. It really stinks to have such low supply. It's almost not even worth it, but then I tell myself that each drop makes a difference, so I keep pumping away!

Price: The More Milk+ is $19.95 for 2oz

Overall: ***** It definitely does it's job!

I would love to try the more milk. My milk has always dried up by the time my babies are 6 months old. My daughter is almost 4 months and I would love to continue breast feeding her longer than 6 months.

MsRach said...

There are so many amazing products from Motherlove, but for now, my favorite is the nipple cream because that is what helped me to survive breastfeeding my son till we were able to take care of the tongue tie issue. That cream was a life saver for my poor boobs.

i would definetly like to try the more milk +. i had too much milk with my first and really low supply with my second. low to the point that when i had a 9lb 4 month old that i just gave up and switched to formula. i hated doing it, but i had tried so many things to up my supply and nothing worked.
