    Lisa - no. They are different. You definitely need brewers yeast which you can get from a health food shop.

    Erin21, I find that when I add the brewers yeast to stuff, it does taste *different* ever so slightly, but not bad if that makes sense?

    Re the low supply, I think if you found that bub was not seeming to be satisfied after a feed, needing to feed more often, that sort of thing could be indicative of a low supply... if you do a search in BH you will find many threads/info sheets on it.

    BTW- is that your daughter in your avatar? She is just gorgeous!!! That hair is to die for!!

    IT WORKS!

    I'm totally not a cook and often don't have the time or can't be bothered making things, so this works really well. It doesn't taste good at all - but it doesn't make me gag or anything, and it is most definitely helping my supply.

    Also make sure you drink HEAPS of water and are eating 1500 - 1800 calories per day. I was restriting my calories to 1300 to lose weight, and I think that's how I stuffed up my supply in the first place

    Bubba's milk is far more important than losing weight.
    Can you tell me how many times a day you were having this drink. I have tried a herbal mix of fenugreek and thistle to promote more milk but nothing seem to be happening.

    Stir in 1/3 cup milk, 1 tsp brewers yeast and 1 tbsp of maple syrup and serve.

    Ths is by far the easiest, healthiest and most effective concoction I have come up with to date

    Serve with plain yoghurt and sliced fruit or berries if you have them (although it's fine on it's own )
    Justmum: I made this this morning & it was horrible! Haha! I think it was the brewers yeast & I'm not sure if something has gone wrong....? When i opened the bag it had such a strong smell & thats all i could taste- is that right?? Maybe you're just a lot braver than i am, i couldn't even get one spoonful down

    I do this porridge too. Every morning. It's not great, but you get used to it. The brewers yeast gives the porridge a real vegemite type smell and taste.

    Hi I'm trying to increase supply too as I've been quiet sick but my lactation consultant told me to steer clear of fenugreek as it can increase your chance of post natal depression. She has also recommended a tea made by a herbal place in Fitzroy in Melbourne. They mail order so will update everyone once I try it.
