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.

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.
