How to take these remedies? A dose is always two pellets – despite the label on the container!
Take two and wait, observe and you will know if you need to repeat.
If things settle down, the crying or discomfort stops then two is enough.
If it reduces the intensity but isn’t gone, then repeat the remedy.
If it does nothing then you have the wrong remedy.

There are several homeopathic remedies that are able to ask the body to increase your milk supply. However – before you read further please check that you are first aware of the following vital actions that are more important then any remedies:
you are spending significant time resting, in bed SKIN TO SKIN with your baby
you have had some professional nursing support from a lactation consultant, a midwife, a doula or another mother that is experienced in breastfeeding.
you are drinking a min. of 8 glasses of water daily
you are eating a min. of three meals a day with protein, fruits, vegetables and grains
you are feeling supported in your home – i.e care for other children is in place, meals, laundry help etc. is happening
you are not in pain
If you are able to adjust any of these areas please do – they do make a difference. It is most likely that you are in need of extra support – your body knows how to make milk and feed the baby that you just grew and gave birth to. Trust in this.
this is for a milk supply that is erratic – it is good, then it is low, then it is fine again. Often the mother feels very weepy, wants to have lots of reassurance and company.
Lac Caninum 200C
Lac Caninum is a remedy that will address milk flow issues that switch from side to side. The mother may feel a conflict between nursing and the sexuality of her breasts – this needs to be resolved to fully step into breastfeeding.

Homeopathy is a wonderful tool to support mothers that would like to breastfeed short or long term.
In the short term there are remedies to increase milk supply, clear blocked ducts and mastitis or resolve a mental/emotional reaction to nursing.
In the long term homeopathy can assist a woman in maintaining good energy, balance and hydration levels. A remedy called Phosphoric Acid200C is highly recommended for women that have been breastfeeding several months or have been breastfeeding intensely (twins or extremely hungry babes) and may be experiencing the following:
low energy (lower than the normal sleep deprivation low…)
feeling numb or flat emotionally
thirsty for carbonated beverages
This remedy will bring back your vitality and energy and give your body a boost in recharging.
Drink lots of water – for every cup of coffee, tea or pop you will have to replace it with a cup of water just to stay even in your hydration. Phosphoric acid states are created by dehydration.
