Motherlove Review - Help For Struggling Breastfeeding Moms

I had a really hard time breastfeeding my first child, and I ended up having to supplement with some formula, which I was very sad and disappointed about.  Ask any mother who tries to breastfeed and can't, and you will find out many of them feel like failures at first.  It was a hard time for me, but I kept breastfeeding until my son was 16 months old! I am not sure how much he actually got from me, but I know he got some, and that was a victory for me.

This time around with my second child, I was scared it would happen again, but I really wanted to exclusively breastfeed. I was a bit worried, because my chest size didn't grow that much during this pregnancy, just like last time.

Thankfully, I knew about Motherlove products! They have become my favorite company when it comes to pregnancy and new mother products. They have a whole line of supplements to help you breastfeed successfully!

Creating the purest products of the finest quality, Motherlove Herbal Company is dedicated to using certified organic ingredients for a holistic way to soothe, pamper and enrich the pregnant or breastfeeding body. Certified cruelty free and without the use of preservatives, artificial fragrances and petroleum-based additives (such as mineral oil) found in most body care products, Motherlove products instill confidence and peace of mind as you nurture yourself and the life within.  Motherlove products have been proven so effective they have earned the trust and continued support of lactation consultants, midwives, healthcare practitioners and mothers everywhere.

I tried out their More Milk Special Blend capsules. These capsules can stimulate mammary tissue and increase breast milk for women who did not increase in breast size during pregnancy, have had previous breast surgeries and adoptive mothers.  I asked my midwife about them to see what her opinion was. She thought that since I had been taking Shaklee vitamins and had been living a healthier lifestyle than my last pregnancy, I would be able to breastfeed successfully. She looked at the label of the More Milk Special Blend, and she agreed it certainly wouldn't hurt to try them once I had the baby. The ingredients were the very things she recommends to moms struggling with breastfeeding: goat's rue, fenugreek seed, blessed thistle, nettles, and fennel seed.

So, the very same day I gave birth, I started taking these capsules. I also starting drinking lots of nettles tea and kept taking my Shaklee vitamins. I was able to breastfeed right away, felt my milk come in, and have been breastfeeding exclusively ever since!!! It is so wonderful and amazing! Not too often are women excited about leaking milk, but I am! It means I have plenty for my little baby. I feel so blessed!

I know I wouldn't have been so successful with breastfeeding this time around if it weren't for my Shaklee Vitalizer, Motherlove More Milk Special Blend, and my overall healthy and natural lifestyle. It really makes a difference!

Just like my Shaklee vitamins are the best quality in the business, I feel that Motherlove products are the best breastfeeding products in their business. They are made with certified organic herbs and are regularly tested for bacteria and heavy metals to ensure their purity and quality. 

They also offer other great organic products to help with breastfeeding and new baby like diaper cream, nipple cream, and their green salve, which I especially love, since you can use it on most skin irritations. Their skin care products are made from the highest quality purest ingredients, and are 100% organic! I love them!

Head on over to Motherlove and see why I love them so much. If you know anyone who is struggling with breastfeeding, please tell them about Motherlove. It could make a world of a difference in their breastfeeding experience.

  1. I liked on Blog….and like in real life too. I would love more of their products.

  2. I am having lots of problems breastfeeding my twin boys I am not producing enough breastmilk. I've tried fenugreek and mothers milk tea with not much results. At one point I was able to pump 3 oz of milk from each breast but that would only happen when I would skip a feeding for the last 3 days I only pumped 1 oz from each breast and has been decreasing!! I've tried nursing often but my boys get frustrated and won't continue after both crying at the same time I give in and give them formula. I have a 16 year old which i breastfed exclusively, 7 year old which I breastfed for 4 months then I had to supplement but I was able to continue and with my twins they are not even 2 months and I can't feed them no more.

  3. This cream is the best. I had really sore cracked nipples the first week I was nursing my daughter. I was putting Lasinoh cream on my nipples, but it was so thick that putting it on was painful. Then, a friend suggested this cream. Wow, what a difference, it is oily but goes on smooth and heals the nipples like you would not believe. It does smell a bit like olve oil
