We all share special moments in our lives, right from the time of birth. We see the world and admire the beauty we come across. Soon the social enigma of marriage comes into the picture and thereafter comes the blissful enjoyment of life in the form of a newborn child.

For a woman it's the most important transformation of her life, as she becomes a Mother, The truly unselfish savior of her child.

For the newborn baby the most nutritional diet is Mother's milk for at-least first six months. And is very important for mothers to keep lactating during the first six months period. Sometimes few women don't get enough milk and thus need to retreat to formula's which doesn't do much good for the newborn baby.

An idle woman would need to pump atleast 2 ounce every hour to feed her baby. But its not that simple to keep producing milk. There are many supplements that might boast to Aid lactation but seldom do they work.

Fenugreek comes handy for Lactating Moms, it is been used for centuries now, and is proven to show positive results in about 72 hours.

Fenugreek seeds are used as spices in many Asian countries and is believed to sooth the stomach and also seen as a cure to diabetes by lowering the blood sugar levels.

Fenugreek leaves are also grown as herbs and availabe in the market. Dishes made out of it can be used by breast feeding moms to increase the flow of milk. One easy dish is to mix the leaves with your favorite salad mix and add some Salsa or Ranch for taste.
