Boobie Bars Lactation Bars - How Does Your Milk Supply Benefit

Lactation herbs have been used for centuries to help moms increase milk supply.  One problem is that the dosage is hard to regulate between brands.  Brands like Boobie Bars have a proprietary blend of herbs in the appropriate dosage to help moms increase milk supply.  Moms generally report 1.5-4.5 ounces increase per day when consoming at least one Boobie Bar per day.  In addition, moms need calories to make milk.  It takes an additional 500 calories per day for your body to produce breast milk.  What better way to add calories that benefit both the caloric needs and the specific herbs that have been identified as galactagogues to increase milk supply than supplements that are not only helpful, but delicious like Boobie Bars. And Moms really seem to love the Oatmeal Chocolate Chip variety! Try a box of these lactation bars to see how you like them or buy a one month supply of Boobie Bars with free shipping from Lactation Connection to get the most bang for your buck.
