How the ingredients may benefit breast milk production and breastfeeding Mums.
Your nutritional requirements change and increase during pregnancy and after the arrival of your baby. Meeting these increased needs through diet alone can be hard to achieve for some as with a new baby to take care of around the clock, eating and drinking right can sometimes fall by the wayside.
The Healthy Mummy Breastfeeding Plus is specially tailored to help meet the nutritional requirements of a breastfeeding mother. The mixture is full of natural energy and milk supply boosting foods to ensure extra energy, immunity and healthy development of your baby.
Healthy Mummy Breastfeeding Plus assists mothers to meet their increase needs for vitamins and minerals when breastfeeding when not receiving them from food sources. Its also jam packed galactagogues which are known substances that increase milk supply for some women.
Does it contain gluten/dairy? No, The Healthy Mummy Breastfeeding Plus is free from gluten and dairy so is safe for coeliacs and those who are intolerant to gluten. It also won’t affect mothers or babies who are cow’s milk protein intolerant or lactose intolerant as it contains no traces of dairy.
Is it dairy free? Yes, Healthy mummy Breastfeeding Plus is free of all dairy! Its safe for mothers or babies who are cows milk protein intolerant or lactose intolerant. Although it is dairy free, 1 serve of Breastfeeding Plus provides over 20% of your recommended daily intake of calcium thanks to the high calcium content in the lithothamnion calcereum.
I am feeding twins or tandem feeding, do I take double the amount?
No, Just stay with one serving (10gm) of The Healthy Mummy Breastfeeding Plus. Feeding multiple infants will cause a natural increase in appetite due to the increase energy requirements of breastfeeding (about 500 calories per baby per day). So if choosing nutritious food, you will be consuming extra foods that contain vital vitamins and minerals for both you and your babies.
What if I am only feeding X amount times per day- what is my serving size?
A lactating woman’s increased needs for calories, vitamins and minerals only change slightly with increases or decreases in milk production. Continue taking one serve (10 gm) regardless of how much you are feeding or if you are starting to wean to ensure your body is adequately nourished.
How many times a day can I take this?
Healthy Mummy Breastfeeding Plus is a once daily addition to your diet. Mix 2 teaspoons (one serve = 10gm) in with some water or juice to help support your body when breastfeeding.
Can I take this with a breastfeeding/regular multivitamin?
Show the ingredients list to your healthcare provider if you intend on mixing The Healthy Mummy Breastfeeding Plus with any other regular multivitamins or medications to ensure it is safe for both you and your baby as some vitamins can accumulate in the tissues and cause toxicity.
What’s the difference between this and The Healthy Mummy smoothies?
The regular smoothie mix is a low sugar, high fibre and protein combination, which contains 24 important nutrients that can be used as a filling and nourishing meal replacement where as the Breastfeeding Plus is a nutrient dense powder added to water or juice to give an additional boost of vitamins and minerals to breastfeeding women. The smoothie mix and Breastfeeding Plus are both free from dairy and wheat.

If it is safe in pregnancy?
Some herbal preparations such as blessed thistle and fennel should not be consumed during pregnancy in large amounts. If you think you may be pregnant, speak with your health care provider before continuing to use Healthy Mummy Breastfeeding Plus.
When is the recommended time to start taking it?
As Breastfeeding Plus contains a whole bunch of milk boosting galactagogues such as Fenugreek, St Mary’s Thistle and Goats Rue, it is best to wait six weeks postpartum to allow your body to settle into breastfeeding and your milk supply to regulate to your babies needs. If you’ve lost a lot of blood, had a delay in milk coming in or are experiencing other postnatal issues, speak with your health care professional about starting earlier.
Does it have soy?
No, The Healthy Mummy Breastfeeding Plus does not contain any soy products.
Are the ingredients organic?
Were possible we have strived to use organic ingredients. The Healthy Mummy Breastfeeding Plus is GMO free (genetically modified) and free of any nasty chemicals or additives making it a safe choice when breastfeeding.
Would it affect my baby who suffers from intolerance from certain foods?
Most food products consumed by a mother will transfer through the milk and could have an affect on a baby that is intolerant. The Healthy Mummy Breastfeeding Plus is a low allergy product as it is free of dairy, gluten and soy! If you notice any changes in your babies when taking the Breastfeeding Plus, consult a trusted health care professional.
What are galactagogues ?
Galactagogues are herbal or prescription substances that have milk boosting properties. Although they are usually harmless, some have potential side effects and drug interactions that must be considered for each individual mother. You should talk to your health care provider about whether a particular galactagogue is safe for you.
I have low supply, will this help?
True low supply is very uncommon as most women are capable of producing a full milk supply for their infant and is in fact a perceived low supply due to lack of knowledge around normal lactation and normal infant behaviour. Working with a lactation consultant will help correct any underlying issues that may be causing a lack of supply. By far, the most important way to establish and maintain an adequate milk supply is for breastmilk to be removed often and well. Breastmilk is made of a supply and demand basis- the more milk removed from your breasts (and the more often), the more milk they’ll make and vice versa. Adequate maternal nutrition, fluid intake, rest and reduction of stress all assist in ensuring a good milk supply.
If my supply is already great, why would I take it?
Although containing a range of galactagogues (natural milk boosting foods), The Healthy Mummy Breastfeeding Plus also supports mothers by providing a nutrient dense powder filled with vitamins and minerals to nourish her body when faced with the additional requirements on the body when lactating, recovering from pregnancy and birth ailments and caring for an infant around the clock.
Where can I get help for my breastfeeding problems/issues?
Internationally board certified lactation consultants are the gold standard in Breastfeeding Plus. Book in to see you local IBCLC or get in touch with the Australian Breastfeeding Association to discuss any specific breastfeeding issues you may be having.
Can I take this if I’m mix feeding?
Yes, if you are both breastfeeding and giving formula you can still nourish your body with all the goodness from the Breastfeeding Plus. If you are supplementing your infant with formula due to low supply, with the support of a lactation consultant and the milk boosting ingredients in the Breastfeeding Plus, you may be able to exclusively breastfeed your baby if you choose to do so.
I have had oversupply or mastitis before, should I take this product?
The Healthy Mummy Breastfeeding Plus is full of milk boosting nutrients and therefore may lead to oversupply and possibly mastitis if you are prone to it. Keep an eye on supply and comfort levels when starting the Breastfeeding Plus. If the milk boost properties are too strong for you, try half a dose.
Is The Healthy Mummy Breastfeeding Plus free from porcine derived ingredients? Yes The Healthy Mummy Breastfeeding Plus is free of pork and beef derived ingredients or products.
What is the difference between Breastfeeding Plus and The Healthy Mummy Super Greens?
Super Greens doesn’t have any of the milk boosting properties that are included in The Healthy Mummy Breastfeeding Plus, so if you like the Super Greens formula and have been taking it during pregnancy, think about switching over to the Breastfeeding Plus once you’ve have your baby to keep receiving the health benefits of our specially formulated powders.
The Healthy Mummy Super Greens aims to help boost energy and plus the immune system. It provides over 37 whole food ingredients in an easily digestible & nutritional formula, which can be added to water, or any smoothie mix for consumption. The specially formulated mix is free of dairy, gluten and preservatives and is safe during lactation. The Super Greens aims to give busy mums an energy boost by providing high levels of iron, vitamin c, vitamin B12 and calcium. It contains ‘superfoods’ such as goji berries, chia seeds, kale and spirulina, which boast a range of health benefits including assisting in immune function.
Do all mothers need vitamin and mineral supplementation to breastfeed?
The levels of calcium, magnesium, phosphorus, zinc, iron and folic acid in breast milk are usually unchanged even if your diet is deficient. The body is very good at supplying what the baby needs and will take from the mother’s store, leaving her deficient in order to nourish the infant. Unless severely malnourished, your baby will receive all it needs from breast milk regardless of maternal supplementation. If you are not nourishing your body with an adequate diet, Healthy Mummy Breastfeeding Plus can help you feel more energy and vitality by ensuring your body is nourished with superfoods, vitamins and minerals present in the mix. Water soluble vitamin such as vitamin C , ingested by the mother will usually increase the levels found in breast milk but only to a certain point. Lactating women need approximately 1000mg of calcium per day to help with the calcium loss from the bones while breastfeeding. The Healthy Mummy Breastfeeding Plus had over 20% of the recommended daily intake in just one serve!
Can I add it to baking? – You could, however you may find some of the nutritional benefits are reduced by cooking and the probiotic action will probably be destroyed.
The pink breastfeeding bracelet reads ‘Last fed on this side’ and is the PERFECT reminder as to which side you last breast fed on.
