Food-Grown Breast-Feeding ComplexRegular price $33.00 ex VAT
A unique complex of Food-Grown® nutrients and botanicals to support milk supply and quality for breastfeeding women. Providing Vitamin B12 which contributes to the normal functioning of the nervous system and normal psychological function and iron, selenium and zinc which contribute to the reduction of tiredness and fatigue as well as the health of skin, hair and nails. Stinging Nettle (or Urtica Dioica) and Fenugreek have been used for centuries as galactagogue herbs (breast milk enhancers) to improve milk supply and quality for lactating women. Their natural supply of iron and other minerals means that they are also used as a nutritiously rich plant to nourish the new mother after birth.
This unique complex also provides Lutein, the primary carotenoid found within breastmilk to support the development of the brain and eyes during infancy. Supply in breastmilk is dependent on a mother's intake during pregnancy and breastfeeding and recent research has shown that supplementation with lutein during breastfeeding can enhance supply to the breastfed baby.

Frequently Asked Questions:
Can I safely take Food-Grown Breast Feeding Complex, alongside the Food-Grown Pregnancy?
Absolutely, yes you can. In fact, the products were formulated with the view to taking them in combination. This is because the Food-Grown Pregnancy was designed to be used after the birth and the Food-Grown Breast Feeding is not a multi – so they ‘click’ together nicely.
Is Food-Grown Breast Feeding Complex a multi?
No, its a special combination of nutrients and botanicals to provide support to faciliate easier feeding/milk supply and increase nutrients that are key in breast feeding for mother and baby. But it does not contain every single nutrient like a multi would.
When do I start taking Food-Grown Breast Feeding Complex?
You can begin taking it as soon as you give birth. Please do not use during pregnancy. Wild Nutrition recommend stocking up before you give birth so its ready at home/in hospital to use!
Do I need to supplement vitamin D with Food-Grown Breast Feeding Complex?
Yes you will. Its not contained in the formula and vitamin D is officially recommended to be supplemented during breast feeding. If you are also using the Food-Grown Pregnancy multi, then that contains 10ug (400iu) but you may also still need more. You can supplement with Food-Grown Vitamin D/Vegan Vitamin D.
I am already producing lots of milk and sometimes too much milk - is Food-Grown Breast Feeding right for me?
No, if you are experiencing intensified letdown or producing too much milk. Instead, if you still want to support yourself nutritionally, we recommend using the Food-Grown Pregnancy since this was formulated for post-natal support too.
Can I take Food-Grown Breast Feeding Complex with your Food-Grown Pregnancy?
Absolutely - yes you can combine these products together and we recommend it. Since the Food-Grown Pregnancy was designed to be used after the birth as well.
