Are you looking for ways to make more breast milk for your baby? I was in the same position as you until I found this company. In my Mrs Patel's review, I'll go over each of the lactation products I've used and what I like about them.
In my search to find tips on making more milk and for products that help with this, Mrs. Patel's lactation treats kept popping up. I'm glad I tried them because it made a world of a difference for me and my milk supply!

Why I Love Mrs Patel's
I love Mrs Patel's for three reasons. First, their products helped increase my milk production by three ounces a day. This added up to an extra 100 ounces a month that I could give my babies! Second, their products are vegan and do not contain any animal ingredients. Third, all of Mrs Patel's products are made fresh to order right here in the United States!
Anhoni Patel, known as Mrs Patel, founded in 2012 in San Francisco to help both pregnant and breastfeeding women. Mrs Patel's makes handcrafted lactation and pregnancy products using recipes handed down from mother to daughter for generations following Ayurveda, which is an ancient Indian medicinal system.
Some of the products they offer are lactation cookies, munch crunch, lactation tea, lactation treats, and more!
Chai Spice Lactation Tea
My favorite product in this Mrs. Patel's review is the chai spice lactation tea. It's a milk water tea that's vegan, helps with lactation, and is caffeine-free. I drank a cup almost every day. To make it taste better, I added a little almond milk and sugar to it.
It has cinnamon, cloves, cardamom, and rooibos (sweet red tea from South Africa). You can drink this tea hot or cold. I drank it hot and found that drinking hot relaxed me more. n
Mrs. Patel's lactation treats are an old family recipe that are full of ingredients to help with your lactation needs and milk supply. I recommend the chocolate ones because they have a layer of chocolate on top to make them a little more tasty.
These bars have a strong Indian flavor. They are not cookies or brownies. They're super easy to grab and eat. The bars are made to help you with four things:
- Postpartum Healing
The fenugreek in them helps with lactation and increasing your milk supply. The coconut in them provides healthy fat. The almond meal is there for protein and for omega-3 fatty acids.
They also have herbs that help your muscles and joints and ginger for digestion. Mrs. Patel's recommends that you eat 1 bar every morning with food.
These superbars are energy bars and are fenugreek free. They help with lactation, pregnancy, and menstruation. Make sure to store them in your refrigerator.

How much does it cost?
It costs $10.99 for a 14 pack of the chai spice lactation tea. The chocolate lactation treats cost $25 for a box of 12 bars. Each superbar is $2 or you can get a box of 6 bars for $10.99. The box is a better deal because you'll save a dollar. Orders over $75 get free shipping!
Is it worth the cost?
Absolutely! A mother's milk is the most important thing you can give your newborn. If you're struggling to make enough milk for your baby, you owe to your child to give them as much as humanly possible.
If you're unsure about the products, start with a small order and see what they can do for you. Make sure you're keeping track of how much milk you produce in a day so you can see if your milk production is up or not.
Important things you should know
Do not use Mrs Patel's lactation products if you're pregnant. Instead, I suggest their pregnancy teas. Those with thyroid, blood sugar issues (such as diabetes), peanut allergies and those taking certain blood clotting medications should avoid fenugreek.
Popular Lactation Questions
Before taking any supplements, please consult with your doctor. If you took a prenatal vitamin while pregnant, continue to do so as long as you are breastfeeding. Vitamins to make sure you’re getting include: zinc, calcium, vitamin A, vitamin B1, vitamin B2, vitamin B6, vitamin D, vitamin B12, iron, iodine, choline, and DHA.
Yes. Water is extremely important for milk production. A good rule of thumb to follow is aiming to drink .5 ounces of water for each pound you weigh. You’ll need to drink additional water beyond this while nursing. Drink to satisfy your thirst in order to stay hydrated.
Fenugreek, oatmeal or oat milk, fennel seeds, and garlic have been known to help some women. While there’s no guarantee they will work, give them a try with your doctor's approval.
