Question:

Can i take brewers yeast tablets so I can get more milk??

Answer:

Brewer’s yeast is rich in the Vitamin B complex and can help your total wellbeing, hence your milk production.

Pumping after feeds also helps and Fenugreek, an herbal supplement taken @ 1220 mg every 6 hours is usually very helpful.

Give it at least 2 weeks to take full effect.
