Increase Breast Milk Supply – Quickly and Naturally!
Special discount due to product expiring Aug 31st 2018.
Nursing Blend is an all-natural dietary supplement that contains a blend of herbs that have been used for centuries by nursing mothers when a boost in breast milk supply is needed, including fenugreek and fennel seed. And, by providing a unique combination of whole fenugreek seed powder along with a concentrated fenugreek seed extract, Nursing Blend offers an equivalent dose of 2 grams of fenugreek in each daily dose. Nursing Blend also includes herbs that provide calming effects for mom and baby, including chamomile and anise.
Nursing Blend is the only dietary supplement that combines herbal support for breast milk production with the vitamin and mineral support that nursing moms need to produce quality breast milk. Now that you are breastfeeding you need higher levels of certain nutrients to keep both you and your baby healthy. Nursing Blend was scientifically-designed by doctors and nutritionists to specifically meet the nutritional needs of nursing mothers and their babies and to aid in milk production. In addition, Nursing Blend is endorsed by leading lactation specialist and MD, Dr. Kathleen Marinelli.
This comprehensive formula brings together essential vitamins and minerals to ensure proper nutrition, along with herbal ingredients to support breast milk production. It provides 100% Daily Value of most vitamins and minerals, and extra amounts of vitamins known to be especially important for lactating women, including Vitamin D and the B vitamins.
Current research shows that most women are deficient in Vitamin D, which our skin makes when exposed to sunlight, probably because we are so careful with covering up, avoiding sun or using sunscreen. That means that nursing mothers are deficient, as are their babies. Once believed to be important only for bone and dental health, a rapidly growing body of scientific research now indicates that Vitamin D plays a vital role in preventing a wide range of medical conditions, from diabetes to various forms of cancer. Although the current Daily Value for vitamin D is set at only 400 IU, many experts are concerned that this amount grossly underestimates our need for Vitamin D and are recommending that all people, and especially lactating women, increase their daily intake of this key nutrient. By providing 700% Daily Value of Vitamin D, Nursing Blend helps to increase circulating levels of Vitamin D in nursing women, thereby ensuring that the breast milk produced by these women will have enough Vitamin D to prevent suboptimal Vitamin D status in their growing babies.
Nursing Blend also contains extra amounts of Vitamins B-6 and B-12, which are necessary for the proper function of the immune system and nervous system and in the production of red and white blood cells. Vegetarian and vegan mothers may be especially at risk for deficiencies vitamin of B-12 because it is naturally found only in animal products. Folic acid continues to be important during nursing to aid in healthy cell production. Nursing Blend also contains zinc to help support a healthy immune system and ensure optimal growth and development.
These nutrients, along with other key vitamins and minerals in Nursing Blend, ensure that you and your baby are obtaining the nutrition you need.

Should I take an omega 3 fatty acid supplement in addition to this supplement if it was in my prenatals?
You can certainly take an Omega-3 supplement along with Nursing Blend!
Will it work even though my son is already 6 months and its my first time taking it?
Yes, you can begin taking the supplement at any time if you are still breastfeeding to help encourage production!
I noticed that the bottle I received stated that the serving size is 3 capsules, but here on the Q&A it says that 2 is the recommended does… Which is it- 2 a day or 3 a day?
We have recently changed our formulation. Please follow the label on the bottle!
How long after giving birth can I start this product?
You can begin use immediately after you give birth.
Is this product manufactured in the USA?
Yes, Nursing Blend is manufactured here in the United States in a GMP Certified facility.
So, if I take this supplement, do I still need to take my prenatals while breastfeeding?
Nursing Blend contains a complete postnatal vitamin – so we wouldn’t recommend you take an additional prenatal.
Can it be taken when you are still pregnant. I would say a month before your due date?
We would recommend that you wait to begin this supplement until you’ve given birth.
I am currently taking Nursing Blend, and I was adding vitamin D to one of my baby’s bottles a day at the recommendation of our pediatrician since my baby is exclusively breastfed. With the amount of vitamin D in Nursing Blend do I still need to give the baby vitamin D supplements?
Because of the extra amount of Vitamin D in Nursing Blend, it is likely that your breast milk contains a sufficient amount of Vitamin D to meet your baby’s Vitamin D requirements. However, please discuss this with your doctor before discontinuing the supplement for your baby.
It says take 3 capsules daily as a dietary supplement. Can you take them all together? Or do you have to split them up? 1 in morning for breakfast 1 with lunch and 1 with dinner? Also do you have eat with them? I’m a first time user and got my supply in the mail today. Thanks
We generally recommend you take them in divided doses throughout the day with meals.
I breastfed exclusively for the first 2 weeks then my milk supply just dried up. I was wondering if i take this product, would it be possible that I could ever breastfeed again? My son is now 14 weeks old
Yes, we would certainly hope and expect that the galactogogues contained in nursing blend would help you to re-establish your milk flow.
Can this product be taken together with Fenugreek supplement?
Our Nursing Blend product contains a combination of whole Fenugreek seed powder and a concentrated Fenugreek seed extract that provides a dose of Fenugreek that is equivalent to 2 grams of Fenugreek seed powder. Our Fenugreek supplement also provides a dose of Fengugreek that is equivalent to 2 grams of Fenugreek seed powder. Therefore, taking these products together will provide an equivalent dose of approximately 4 grams of Fenugreek. While Fenugreek is safe and well-tolerated in large amounts, we recommend starting with Nursing Blend, and only adding additional Fenugreek if absolutely necessary.
Is this vitamin the best one out of the others to take to help produce more milk?
This is a great supplement to help increase breast milk production – and additionally, it provides you with a complete postnatal vitamin.
Is this Vegan friendly?
This product is Vegan
If I stop drinking the Nursing Blend, will my milk production stop?
To continue to receive the benefits from Nursing Blend, we’d recommend you continue to take the supplement. If you had an issue with milk production before Nursing Blend, it would likely resume to what it was before starting Nursing Blend.
I had a breast reduction surgery 6yrs. ago. I am due to deliver in a few days and considering breastfeeding but fear that I may not be able to. Will this product help in my situation if I’m not able to produce enough milk?
Yes, we would highly recommend this product to help ensure that your breast milk production is sufficient.
Do you follow standard GMP or pharmaceutical GMP?
There are GMP standards established for manufacturing different products. Dietary supplements are very different from over-the-counter and prescription medications (aka pharmaceuticals). As a result, the GMP standards that govern the manufacturing of dietary supplements are different than the GMP standards that govern the manufacturing of pharmaceuticals. While there is some overlap in standards, they are not exactly the same.
With both industries, GMP-certification is provided by third-party organizations, and is your assurance that the product you are purchasing was manufactured according to the highest quality standards.
I’m currently taking a Women One A Day multi vitamin. Would you recommend taking this in addiction to it, or wait until I am done with the multi-vitamin before taking the nursing blend supplement?
Nursing Blend contains a complete postnatal vitamin (a vitamin targeted specifically at breastfeeding moms), therefore, we wouldn’t recommend you take an additional prenatal vitamin along with it.
Does it matter if i waited to long to take the vitamins? My son is two months old.
You can begin taking the supplement at any time while you are still breastfeeding.
The dosage appears to be 2 capsuls daily, however what if you increase the dosage to 4 daily, to in the AM and 2 in the evening, will this help speed up the milk production?
Nursing Blend not only helps to increase the quantity of milk production, but it also contains a complete prenatal vitamin – therefore, we would not recommend you take more than the recommended dosage.
Can one take this breastfeeding supplement along side prenatal vitamins? How many capsules are there in a bottle?
Nursing Blend actually contains complete vitamin and mineral support, therefore, you wouldn’t need to take an additional prenatal vitamin. Each bottle contains 60 capsules (1-month supply).
What size are the pills? I have a very hard time swallowing pills, are they capsules or coated?
The capsules are about the size of a generic multivitamin. However, you can easily open the capsule and add it to food or drink.
I’m allergic to soy and diary, is your product free of these allergens?
Nursing Blend is soy and dairy-free.
Is it better to take both pills at one time or one in the morning and one at night?
We generally recommend you take the supplement in divided doses throughout the day with meals – however, it’s also fine to take both at once.
About how long does it normally take to start producing more milk?
Typically, women report increased breast milk production within one to two weeks.
How many tablets are you supposed to take? And how many times a day?
The recommended dosage is 2 capsules daily.
Do I have to take this supplement along with the nursing time tea in order to help me produce more breastmilk?
You don’t have to take them in combination with one another – however, we would recommend you take both if you’re experiencing low milk production. Nursing Blend also contains a complete prenatal vitamin specifically formulated for nursing moms.
Can you take nursing blend while you are pregnant to get a head start on your milk supply?
We don’t recommend taking Nursing Blend until you’ve given birth. In the meantime, we’d highly recommend you continue your prenatal vitamin.
Is there a guarantee that this product has no side effects. Is this product available in the caribbean . I have a 6 weeks old premature and im low in breast milk and is willing to try it because the formula is constipating him.
Rest assured that there are no known side effects associated with taking Nursing Blend – the ingredients are well known to be safe and effective for nursing mothers. We can ship to you directly to the Carribean.
