Review & Giveaway: Mrs. Patel's

I nursed my son for six months.  We struggled the entire time.  Gene wasn't gaining weight quickly and I never figured out if it was a latch or supply issue.  I loved breastfeeding and cried for a week when I decided to stop.

During my pregnancy with Moxie, I worried about what it would be like after she was born.  Would she have trouble gaining weight as well or would she nurse better than Gene?  Would I produce enough milk or would my body somehow fail me?

The folks at Mrs. Patel's must have heard my inner monologue.  When they offered to let me review some of their lactation treats, I jumped at the chance.  Mrs. Patel's products are based on traditional medicines of India.  For thousands of years, women in India have been using these recipes to help with postpartum healing and to boost their milk supply.

Fenugreek Bars:

-- Available in 4 flavors: original, peanut butter, chocolate, and vegan
-- Aid in lactation and postpartum recovery
-- Made with pure fenugreek flour

Munch Crunch:

-- Aids in lactation and digestion
-- Can be eaten alone or with other foods
-- Made from sesame, dill, fennel, flax, ajwain, tumeric, and lemon

Milk Water Tea:

-- Aids in lactation and postpartum detoxification
-- Caffeine free
-- Made with whole leaves and flakes

I received all three products before I had Moxie.  After I was discharged from the hospital I began using them.  When I had Gene, I was never really sure when my milk came in.  With Moxie, it was 4AM on a Tuesday morning when she was four days old.  I looked and felt as though I had gotten a boob job.  As I continued using the products, I noticed a definite increase in my supply, especially after drinking the tea.  I had the chocolate fenugreek bars, which were fantastic.  When I was feeling overwhelmed I would hide out in my kitchen and eat one.  Coincidentally, my toddler also thought they were delicious.

  1. Tomorrow will be 1 year that I've breastfed my son, 10 months since I got rid of supplementing and managed to switch exclusively to breastmilk. I feel like that's almost as big a celebration as him turning 1, and I'm so beyond thankful I stuck with it and now get to have this wonderful relationship with him.

  2. So thankful for an amazing husband and 3 beautiful girls!

  3. I am thankful for my family. There isn't anything I wouldn't do for them. I am also thankful I was able to breastfeed my son to a year old. I hope I can do the same with my daughter

  4. I am thankful for making it to 6mo nursing and still going strong! No pain, no gain (;

  5. I also had a hard time nursing with Eva and only nursed for about five months. This time around I have been extremely intimidated about nursing Lily, but we're on day five and so far so good! I'm super interested in trying some of these lactation products - I never knew they existed with Eva! Lol And plus I'll do anything I can do to be more successful with nursing this time

  6. Oh, my above comment was also supposed to have that I am thankful for our newest addition! :)

  7. I am thankful for my sweet, sweet family. That we have made it to one year of breastfeeding (this Saturday), even though we had a very bumpy start. And for our little munchkin on the way. Among many other things. =)

  8. This is a great tip! I'm expecting baby #2 very soon and I didn't produce enough with baby #1. I'll definitely keep Mrs. Patel's in mind this time!
