        Hi Mimi,
        The first thing to look at when you have a gassy baby, is what are you eating? If you have digestible breastmilk, chances are your baby will not be gassy. Please read my post on proper postpartum diet.
        Also giving baby daily baby massage helps wonders as well.
        I also recommend downloading my free postpartum planner eBook. You can easily post the dietary recommendations on your fridge as well as get a print out of the baby massage sequence.
        Let me know how it goes 🙂

      Hi Ameya, could you give me the measurements of fennel and fenugreek by grams, so that i can mix the ingredients in a proper measurement.

      You are doing amazing work! Thanks for sharing your wonderful posts 👍. I started on just Lactation tea and noticed minimal improvement in milk supply. So I started Domperidone (Motilium) 3x10mg three times a day. (So glad I found “DOMBF365” ❤️ in Google and get the reliable source) I got great results. Now I take domperidone and your tasty Lactation tea. This is a great combination. Love your posts!
