Salam alaikum sisters.
Around 2 months postpartum, I noticed my milk supply was running low. No longer was I firm and Hamida was very fussy at the breast. I will admit I wasn't being very intentional with my water intake, I mean, sometimes its difficult to remember to take care of yourself. All you mothers know what I mean.
The mothers milk tea alone was not cutting it. So I went to the arabic store, purchased some whole fenugreek seeds in hopes it would boost my supply. This is how I found preparing them has helped me the most.
I take about 1-2 tablespoons of seeds and slightly crush them. I put them in a quart jar with a tablespoon of fennel seeds, two mothers milk tea bags, two chamomile tea bags, and a tablespoon of honey. I then fill the jar up with boiling water and let it sit on the counter over night. In the morning I squeeze any excess liquid from the tea bags and I put the jar of tea in the refrigerator to keep it from spoiling. I then drink a cup of tea in the morning and the evening.
Alhamdulilah this tea has worked wonders and has gotten my supply back up beautifully.
Now, I know people like to use brewers yeast, but it is quite expensive, so I was very pleased to have found an inexpensive way to keep my milk supply up.
