    Vitamin recommendation for breastfeeding moms

    To breastfeeding moms,

    My due date is coming up soon, and I'm trying to prepare myself for breastfeeding. I'm currently taking Materna and wondering what kind of lactation vitamin supplement I should take (e.g., which brand) once I start breastfeeding. Any recommendation is highly appreciated. Thanks!

    I just carried on taking Materna because it's supposed to be for pregnancy and lactating mothers according to the bottle.

    I also kept on with Materna. The midwives at Matilda suggested a tea to drink (can't remember what it was called) but I never took it.

    Thanks, everyone. I guess I'll just continue with Materna then!
