Dairy Fairy to Increase Low Milk Supply [Review + Giveaway]

Disclosure: I got this product as part of an advertorial.

I remember talking with our Doula about our biggest fears for pregnancy and childbirth. At the top of my list was my fear of not being able to breastfeed. My mom and my grandma both had issues with low to no milk supply. After a lot of reading and research, I firmly believe that neither family history nor small breast size impact a woman's ability to breastfeed. My challenges with low milk supply were a combination of several environmental factors that presented themselves at the same time. I have talked to lactation consultations/doctors, other mothers, and read a lot of other women's experiences. I tried supplements, foods, rest, and relaxation. While some things work for some women, most of those did not work for me. When Euphoric Herbals offered an opportunity to review the Dairy Fairy supplement for low milk supply, I jumped on the opportunity. Euphoric Herbals Dairy Fairy is a daily supplement of USDA Certified Organic herbs to help boost low milk supply.

Dairy Fairy is a compound herbal formula specifically targeted at nursing mothers that are struggling with low milk supply, little breast change prenatally or are looking for an extra boost in their milk supply. Ingredients: Goats Rue, Fenugreek, Alfalfa, Blessed Thistle, Fennel and Marshmallow Root. All ingredients are USDA Certified Organic so that you can feel confident that you are limiting your exposure to pesticides and toxic chemicals during breastfeeding. Two capsules are taken twice a daily. If there is no increase in milk supply after 72 hours, then you increase to two capsules taken three times a day.

I found the supplements easy to take. The size of capsules is not too big. I did have a little bit of taste of some of the herbs after taking the supplement, but it went away within one hour. Since the Dairy Fairy compound herbal formula includes Fenugreek, I did notice that smell of maple syrup that you often hear about. Then again, if the supplements do increase your milk supply, smelling like maple syrup is probably better than other alternatives. A little deodorant or essential oil will cover the smell right up.

Let's talk about the results. Did my milk supply increase? A little bit. Stress affects my milk supply, so after the holiday travel with a 9 month old, my milk supply decreased a little (size of breasts and volume from the night pumping session). Without supplements, it usually takes me at least one week to get back to the normal level after holidays or stressful periods. While taking the Dairy Fairy supplements, I felt that I returned to my normal milk supply levels a lot quicker.

Although taking the Dairy Fairy supplements did not quite increase my milk supply in the ways that I had hoped, I would still recommend Euphoric Herbals Dairy Fairy to any other mom who is looking to increase her low milk supply or just get an extra boost. Remember that supplements work differently on everyone. What might not work for me might work for you. Effectiveness will vary greatly depending on how old your nursing baby is, if your are exclusively nursing, supplementing, pumping, etc. Choosing Certified Organic supplements with natural ingredients is a smart choice for your body and your baby. Europhic Herbals is here to support your breastfeeding needs!
