There is not a specific steam plan related to nursing, however postpartum steam users often report that they experience a boost in breastmilk supply in conjunction with steam sessions. Steaming to benefit breastmilk can be done at anytime but, ideally, steaming should be started within the first few days postpartum when the body is determining the breastmilk supply.
WHY DOES IT WORK?
Steaming may help improve breastmilk production because it helps to improve overall circulation, an important component in breastmilk supply. There also may be an additional effect on prolactin and oxytocin – hormones which are involved in breastmilk production.
