Whether you breastfeed or bottlefeed – you’re a good mom for nurturing your little ones.
My son began trying to nurse within minutes of being born. That may be a slight exaggeration, but it’s close. As soon as he was wrapped up and in the arms of a nurse – he began trying to latch on to something. He was soon placed in my arms and allowed to begin rooting around.
But, I had nothing for him. The nurses encouraged me to allow him to do what he needed to do – and ensured me that he would soon get enough colostrum and all would be right in our world.
Three hours later, he still hadn’t gotten what his tummy needed and was in full-blown meltdown. I was already traumatized by not being able to properly nurse my daughter a couple of years prior – and was panicked that he was so panicked and pitiful looking.
I asked for a bottle.
I was encouraged to keep trying.
I was sore, he was scream-crying. I demanded a bottle.
I never tried to nurse again. For me, it was scarring because I felt like such a failure at something I felt I needed to give my babies. I hadn’t really been counseled or educated in ways to increase milk production and supply. So, I was left clueless and depressed about the entire situation.
If I had it to do over again, there are many different things I would try and include in my breastfeeding diet – including Legendairy.
There are many supplements to increase milk supply – but this would be one of the first I would try based on ingredients and the company behind the products.

If you’re reading this, you’ve probably had or are currently having a similar experience. Please know that you’re not alone. Concern about an inadequate milk supply is the #1 reason why women stop breastfeeding.
That’s why Legendairy Milk®️ was created. For centuries, certain herbs and foods have been used in different cultures to help promote breast milk production. Our herbal lactation supplements were formulated with these carefully chosen ingredients to target the primary issues that affect milk production. Our products are free of any additives or preservatives so that every capsule is brimming with pure and potent milk-enhancing ingredients. We’ve gone to great lengths to ensure our formulations are organic and healthy for both mom and baby because we know a legendairy mom like you deserves a legendairy product.
I’m sure that there were home remedies and supplements that I could have taken when my children were born – but it wasn’t something that was really talked about much. At least not in my circles.
It would have been wonderful to have had more information and a realization that there may have been something I could have tried. But my little world just didn’t have much chatter about it at all – and so I licked my wounds and went on. But it has always been a sore spot for me.
A source of support would have also been a welcome ray of light. I think that’s why Legendairy has stuck out to me and why I’m showing it to you. Because maybe it will be a help to you.
