After the birth of my third child, I was able to use Young Living essential oils and supplements to help lactate better than I ever had before. With my older two children I always had to supplement milk because I just could not produce enough.

1. I applied Fennel essential oil on each breast prior to bedtime.
2. I drank 2 ounces of NingXia Red twice a day.
3. I drank half my body weight in water daily.
4. I would add Lemon, Grapefruit, Lime, Orange or Citrus Fresh essential oils in my water to make it taste better.

I was able to nurse my baby for over a year, and he was never underweight and always 50% or above in weight size for his age.
