Default hops for boobies.

who would thought hops can help produce milk for women. We just had our first baby boy and her milk supply was starting to slow down. We called the doctor and he said drink 8oz of a hoppy beer. to bad my wife doesnt like beer i told her i'll go to the LHBS and pick up some hops and make her hop teas. figured i would share with my brew family that would appriciate that beer can do so much good. lol

Go figure. One of the few times that a doctor will 'prescribe' beer for a patient... and she doesn't even like beer!

Not what I was expecting by the thread title. I thought my stock pile of hops was about to really pay off.

No wonder I have started lactating... I'm drinking too many IPA's.

Some book my wife read while pregnant indicated that dark beers are good for lactation. Don't know how much truth there is to that, but I used it as an excuse to brew her a stout. Came out great, too.
