Favors and Flavors: Breastfeeding resources and supplies

“How can something that’s supposed to come naturally be so hard?”

Countless new mothers have asked themselves that question. When I think back to the early days of motherhood, I remember frustration the most. Well, that and sleep deprivation. I delivered via c-section, something known to hinder the production of breastmilk in the early days. I knew breastmilk was the best food for my baby, but my body didn’t get the memo.

I was tempted to pack it in a bunch of times, but something inside me told me I had to keep going. A combination of Fenugreek and Blessed Thistle and A LOT of time with the baby and the breast pump finally did the trick. I went on to have a two-year breastfeeding relationship with my daughter and I don’t regret a single second I spent making it work.

There are a lot of places you can order herbs from online, but I haven’t seen selection like the one available at Favors and Flavors anywhere. Products to increase milk supply, new mom essentials and supportive articles for new parents – it’s all there!

If you’re a new mom in need of breastfeeding resources NOW, check out Favors and Flavors for the help you need at home, without leaving your home.

  1. After 3 sections I knew that it would take a lot for my milk to come in. And it did. But here I am 4 months later struggling again....sigh. It is SO hard. I've tried fenugreek and milk thistle and no improvement, power pumping, putting her to breast....any other ideas?!?! I am at a loss.
