Today we have a giveaway from Fairhaven Health. Read on for details on this opportunity and an interview with the company including information on their newest product, Nursing Time Tea. Suzanne from Fairhaven Health was happy to answer my questions about the company and shared some great recommendations for building supply. Fairhaven has chosen to sponsor TLB because of their commitment to healthy families.
TLB: How does Fairhaven Health support and encourage families as a company?
Suzanne: At Fairhaven Health, we specialize in products for fertility, pregnancy and nursing, which, naturally, gives us the opportunity to talk every day with women and men as they take their first steps towards becoming parents, and also as they begin their parenting journey. Such an exciting and rewarding journey it is, but, for some of our customers, this path is filled with many disappointments and frustrations. We pride ourselves on being a source of credible information on all things related to reproductive health, and for having soft listening ears for our customers as they share their ups and downs with us.
TLB: How is the Nursing Time Tea different from Nursing Blend and who would benefit from enjoying a cup?
Suzanne: Nursing Time Tea is a comforting and refreshing loose-leaf tea that blends natural galactogogues (such as fennel seed, goat’s rue and blessed thistle) to stimulate breast milk production, with anise and lemon verbena for flavor and to help reduce gas and indigestion. Nursing Time Tea can be enjoyed iced or hot, and is a great way for nursing moms to stay hydrated and build their milk supply. Our dietary supplement called Nursing Blend also contains herbal galactogogues, but also includes full vitamin and mineral support. We feel that vitamin and mineral supplementation is important for nursing moms, so we recommend Nursing Blend both for its multivitamin/mineral support as well as for the breast milk stimulating herbs. Nursing moms who want to build their milk supply can choose either the Nursing Time Tea or the Nursing Blend, or can take both if they desire!
TLB: Other than trying some Nursing Time Tea or Nursing Blend, what’s your #1 tip for moms to be sure they have a great supply of milk for their nurslings?
Suzanne: The two things we tend to emphasize most with nursing moms who are working to establish a dependable and plentiful milk supply are frequent feedings and as much skin to skin contact with their little bundle in between feedings as possible. It is well-known that this skin to skin contact increases prolactin levels, which stimulates breast milk production. But, we also believe that encouraging this closeness between mom and baby gives busy moms an “excuse” (sometimes we will only do what we are told to do, right?) to rest . . .which is really what most moms need more of as it is easier for a well-rested mom to establish her breast milk supply than it is for a fatigued mom.
This giveaway is for a 3 bag supply of Nursing Time Tea for one lucky winner, which represents a retail value of $45. Nursing Time Tea is the all-natural herbal tonic designed to help nursing mothers increase their milk flow and soothe digestive unease of both mother and baby. Nursing Time Tea brings together a select array of safe and proven ingredients to aid nursing and providing a rich spectrum of nutritive vitamins and minerals for robust and healthy breastfeeding. Each bag of Nursing Time Tea is vacuum-sealed for freshness and contains a 1 month supply. All ingredients are organic and wildcrafted, and of the freshest and highest quality with no preservatives or additives. Nursing Time Tea is caffeine-free and has a brisk lemony flavor that is comforting and refreshing.
