If you experience low milk supply during your period, you should consider taking a calcium/magnesium supplement, like this one from Rainbow Light.
Some women experience drops in milk supply from ovulation until the first day or two of menstruation. The blood calcium gradually decreases during this period of time, which can be associated with a drop in milk supply. It also has an added benefit of eliminating uterine cramping and other premenstrual discomforts like water retention.
The recommended dosage is between 500mg calcium/250mg magnesium to 1500mg calcium/750mg magnesium.
When to take a Calcium Magnesium Supplement for Low Milk Supply?
You should begin taking the supplement when you ovulate and continue through the first few days of your period. It doesn’t hurt to take one every day as well.
