Breastfeeding doesn’t always come naturally. Many mothers struggle with milk supply, especially in the first few weeks of life with a newborn, which can cause added stress at an already overwhelming time. Milk Maker is specially formulated to support healthy milk supply and volume for busy breastfeeding Mums and thriving babies.
With natural, galactagogue herbs in an easy to take, one-a-day capsule, Milk Maker is a quick and convenient option for busy Mums and a fast and effective way to support optimal breast milk production.
There are a number of reasons why breast milk supply may be affected. These include:
- Infrequent or short feedings
- An incomplete latch
- Some medications such as antihistamines or oral contraceptives
- Health conditions
- Premature birth
- Previous breast surgery or trauma
|Ingredients (per vege capsule)|
Fenugreek (Trigonella foenum-graecum) seed
Goat's Rue (Galega officinalis) plant
Shatavari (Asparagus racemosus) root
Fennel (Foeniculum vulgare) seed
Fenugreek is a well-known galactagogue and is one of the most popular herbs used to enhance healthy breast milk supply and volume. Slightly bitter, fenugreek is also a digestive aid supporting gastrointestinal comfort and appetite.
Goat's Rue is another popular herb used to support breast milk supply and is often recommended by lactation consultants. Research has shown that Goat’s Rue can also support healthy blood sugar levels, which may be beneficial to help normal milk supply in mother’s where underlying hormonal conditions affect breast milk production.
Shatavari is also known for its galactagogue properties and can help to support a healthy milk supply for breastfeeding mothers. As an adaptogen, shatavari additionally helps the body combat emotional stress and overwhelm which is common in new and busy Mums.
Fennel is another popular and traditional herb that has been used to support breast milk volume and flow. As a natural carminative, fennel also helps to relieve gastrointestinal upset and may help to support the feelings of gas and digestive discomfort in both Mum and baby.
Breastfeeding adults: Take 1 capsule once daily to support milk supply. Best taken in the morning with food. Dose may be increased to 1 capsule up to twice daily if required or as professionally advised.
Take Milk Maker with water, or pair with Two Islands Pea Protein Powder in a smoothie for extra energy and nutrition – trust us, your body will thank you for it.
Along with Milk Maker, it’s important to make sure you are eating a well-balanced diet and staying hydrated to help support adequate breast milk production. Getting enough protein rich foods each day such as chicken, red meat, fish and eggs plus including foods such as oats, fennel, brewer’s yeast and pumpkin seeds are all natural ways to support milk supply while breastfeeding.
Conversely, there are a number of foods that may affect or decrease milk supply. Herbs such as peppermint, parsley and sage that are often added to meals may potentially decrease milk production when consumed in large quantities. While there is no published evidence to support this, if you’re experiencing less than normal milk supply, we suggest taking Milk Maker while avoiding these herbs in your diet and focusing on adequate water and protein intake.
- Not recommended during pregnancy.

What's the best way to take Milk Maker?
We recommend taking 1 capsule of Milk Maker with water in the morning with food. For further support, the dose may be increased to 1 capsule, twice daily.
For optimal milk supply, it’s important to stay hydrated and make sure you’re getting enough protein each day too. We suggest pairing Milk Maker with Two Islands Pea Protein for a quick and easy top up of protein and energy when you’re short on time.
How long does Milk Maker take to work?
While every Mum is different, you should start to see results within as little as 1-3 days.
Can I take Milk Maker while pregnant or trying to conceive?
As Milk Maker is designed for supporting breast milk, we recommend that it is only taken once you have started breast feeding and have sought advice from your healthcare professional.
Are there any contraindications for taking Milk Maker?
Milk Maker is not recommended during pregnancy or for those with diabetes, hypoglycaemia or uncontrolled blood sugar levels or those on insulin or blood sugar lowering medications. We suggest speaking to your healthcare practitioner first before taking Milk Maker if you have any of these conditions.
Can I take Milk Maker alongside my other Two Islands products?
Yes! Consuming enough protein each day and keeping well hydrated are also important to help with optimal milk supply. Adding Two Islands Marine Collagen Beauty Powder or Pea Protein Powder to your favourite smoothie or simply water, is a quick and fuss free way to up your protein and energy intake while breastfeeding.
Whats the difference between taking Milk Maker vs lactation cookies or a breastfeeding tea?
Milk Maker is a convenient, one-a-day capsule formulation. This makes it ideal for busy Mums that don’t have a lot of time to whip up a batch of lactation cookies or have their hands free (or the time) to feed themselves or brew a hot cup of tea!
Lactation cookies can also often be filled with additional sugar, flavourings and extra calories that some people may prefer to avoid. While breastfeeding teas are another option, the nature of galactagogue herbs can be quite bitter tasting and often require several cups over the day to produce therapeutic effects. When you’re a busy Mum, a hot (and entire) cup of tea can become a thing of the past. Two Islands Milk Maker therefore makes it simple – just one capsule a day is all you need to support your supply.

"Believe the hype!"
I was sceptical at first because how can a herbal supplement work so effectively?! But it did, my milk supply was dropping around 3 months and I was not ready to stop breastfeeding! I bought Milk Maker and my supply is back up and better than ever, I can even pump a good 100ml straight after a feed! Definitely recommend to any mum struggling with supply issues.
Am usually skeptical of any product hawked to me but was desperate having tried lactation cookies x100, drinking more water, feeding on demand but making the colossal mistake of reducing my carb intake 3 months in. Enter Milk Maker which upon The First Capsule absolutely worked in increasing my milk supply. I was up 10ml per pump via let down on day 1 of trying the Milk Maker. It's been nearly a week in and Gorgeous Boy #2 has been feeling fuller for longer thereby sleeping longer stretches, fussing less, and Milk production for late night feeds made easier. Thank you Two Islands! Happy Mumma xx
This product has been incredible to help maintain my milk supply for my growing girl! Definitely feel the reassurance in knowing I’m getting all the good stuff to help with milk production without stressing about eating high lactation foods! This one pill with breakfast has been a game changer in my breastfeeding journey!
Hi Tracey, that's incredible! We're honoured to play such a supportive role in your breastfeeding journey. Thank you for sharing!
This product didn't work for me it made my milk supply decrease
Would highly recommend this product. I am exclusively pumping due to latching issues. I was so worried I would lose my supply and our midwife suggested this product. Within four days my supply had increased by 150mls and within two weeks I now have at least 60mls extra at every pump. For me that is 8 pumps a day. Our little boy is thriving and I’m grateful that this product has helped us keep feeding him!
