Disclosure: I was given a sample of this product to try in order to complete an honest review for you. The company has offered to give away a product as well (to individuals residing in the 48 continental United States only). I was not compensated and all opinions are my own.
I was recently contacted by Need Brands which happens to be Tia and Tamera Mowry’s latest business venture, a line of products for mommies! As of now, they have two pregnancy and postpartum products on the market, Milky! and Stretchy!. Since I’m not pregnant (thank goodness!) and have no need for stretch mark cream (are you jealous?), the company sent me a sample of their supplement for lactating mothers, Milky!.
According to Need Brands, Milky! is “the only supplement of its kind to increase quality and quantity of breast milk.” It’s true I’ve never seen anything like it! In the box, there were 12 2.5 ounce bottles, like a little energy drink. This was the first part of this product that appealed to me! I’d be way more likely to drink a mama’s milk tea of it was already brewed, sweetened, and packaged for my convenience! The tea inside the bottle is made up of several organic ingredients that have been shown to boost milk supply and ease some of the pain and frustration of nursing (uncomfortable letdown, etc). It contains Fenugreek, Fennel, Chamomile, Ginger, and Rooibos as active ingredients with a mild natural strawberry flavor and Stevia for sweetness.
So, how was it? Meh… The taste was mild but pretty herby, if you know what I mean. I don’t happen to like the taste of Fenugreek so I wasn’t crazy about it. That said, it was easy to get the tiny bottle down and to obtain the benefits of consistently taking the supplement, I would absolutely take two per day as recommended! It was super easy to shake, open, and chug and it wasn’t gross or grassy flavored like some of the lactation support teas I’ve tried.
So, mommies! If you’re in need of a little lactation support, I do believe that Milky! is a product to try! Here’s Tia and Tamera Mowry to tell you about it themselves! Once you’re done watching the video, head down to the Rafflecopter and complete your entries to win some Milky! to try yourself!
