Ajika Fennel Seeds or Saunf - Indian Herb & Indian Spice
Breastfeeding should be a choice of supplement for every mom until and unless their baby is one year old. I think it is really necessary for the baby to drink mother's milk for at least one year. In India, I know several working moms who take one year off from their jobs just because for the needs of their babies because Indian women are aware of the benefits of mother's milk.
Regarding decreased secretion of mother's milk directly after childbirth is really concerning. Saunf water (water of fennel seeds) and fennel tea is very beneficial for moms who are unable to secret milk for their babies. Some people say that decreased milk production exactly after child birth is due to delayed hormones and delayed expression of motherly feelings for the newborn, some people say that the mother is suffering from general body weakness and malaise. Due to all these reasons, directly after birth of newborn and after cleaning the baby off with required disinfectants and liquids (I do not know their specific medical names), nurses keep the babies with the mom so that they can get attached with their baby and then also if the milk does not come out on its own for two or more days, doctors prescribe some types of granules (again I do not remember the name of that). In these types of cases, drinking one glass of fennel water every three hours a day helps in secretion of mother's milk in abundance and the results can be seen in the first day or next day.
How to make fennel water from fennel seeds?
- For making one liter of fennel water, take two to three tablespoons of fennel seeds or saunf.
- Take one large pan and put the fennel seeds and 1.25 liter of water in that.
- Now let the water boil with fennel seeds for 10 to 15 minutes.
- After boiling for 10 to 15 mins, let it cool down.
- Now take 1 liter bottle with wide mouth and place a filter on that.
- Now pour all the water from the pan via the filter in the bottle so that only remnants of fennel seeds are left on the filter and water gets collected in the bottle.
- Your fennel water is ready for drinking.
