Baby Number 3 and breastfeeding wasn’t going as well as planned – her latch was shallow and she wasn’t gaining weight as fast as her pediatrician would have liked. I was becoming increasingly frustrated as I had previously exclusively breastfed my first two daughters; Savannah and Sienna (who nursed to 16 months and 2.5 years)
Due to Saoirse’s shallow latch, my supply started to drop… and for the first time in my “breastfeeding career” I stared to panic. My milk just wasn’t coming in as it needed to. I started to research solutions and came across Sweetie Pie Organics Lactation Smoothies and I immediately added them to my cart.
Within Days my supply started to increase and became as bountiful as I had remembered it being with the older girls. We then met with a lactation consultant a learned that Saoirse had a tongue tie as well as upper and bottom lip ties, which explained her latching issues. We had those revised with a frenectomy by a children’s dentist and finally were able to continue on with our breastfeeding journey.
I was so grateful for the added support @sweetiepieorganics Lactation Smoothies provided me and I LOVED their apple/pear flavor with fenugreek and flaxseed. By drinking one daily, I truly noticed a significant increase in my milk supply.
So when I was offered to try their Mango/Banana with Vit D3 DHA – I jumped at it. This is just as yummy, with that thicker, more tropical flavor – thanks to the banana and mango. My milk supply is again strong but my absolute favorite thing about this smoothie, in particular, is it provides me with healthier calories, which you need when nursing, and also at the same time curbs those breastfeeding cravings! 🤤
I often find myself feeling super hungry and will start raiding my cupboards for carbs (which does not help with losing that baby weight😭) Yet, I found when drinking this smoothie once a day- I no longer felt the urge to binge and I was still getting all of the nutrients I needed to feed baby!
I highly recommend these lactation smoothies by @sweetiepieorganics,
“ONLY 5 CLEAN INGREDIENTS. No icky stuff added. We use only clean organic ingredients,mama! It is an effortless way to get extra servings of organic apples and pears, and it’s so much better than lactation teas. Take good care of yourself as enjoy this special time with your baby.
NO SUGAR ADDED,DAIRY-FREE,180 CALORIES. Mama, we know how hard it can be to lose the baby weight. The entire smoothie is 180 calories. We add no sugar for a perfectly easy and healthy on-the-go snack.”
They even have a prenatal smoothie which I wish I had known about!
Super Yummy and TOTALLY helped with my milk production! And!!!! I even got that extra vitamin D – which is also great for my breastfed baby!!!
I can’t wait to try their other products! 🐄 👶🏼 🍼 💗🤱🏼
