There are many suggestions on milk boosters, which one works and how long does it take to work?

The question is do you really need a milk booster? Most of the time we find that they don’t need it. They just think they need it because they see others taking it.

Biologically, we will produce milk according to the needs of the baby. The milk booster will tackle the prolactin to increase the milk supply. But if you are producing more but not using it, the milk will be absorbed back into the body. So, initially you may see that there is more milk but after a while you will feel like the production is the same because your baby’s needs have not increased.

If you really do need a booster, you need to try and see what works for you. It’s different for each person. How long it will take to start working also differs from individual to individual. Some may take a day, others may take a few days.
