    Fenugreek

    Advertisements
    Have any of you ladies ever tried this to increase your milk supply?

    With Emma, I dried up in 2 weeks. I was really concerned about that happening again so I talked to both my OB and Madison's pediatrician. They both spoke highly of Fenugreek so we decided to try it. I went from producing 6 ounces in the morning and 2-3 ounces every other pump after that, to 6+ ounces in the morning and 4-5 ounces every pump after that. It's insane.

    I was just curious if anyone else had the results I've had so far.

    I have a lot of trouble taking pills, so I switched to more milk plus. While I was choking down the pills it really worked though. I only take them when I need to pump. You aren't supposed to take the supplements forever, so your body doesn't get used to it. Just when you need a boost. But since you have all that milk, freeze freeze freeze!!!!!!!

    Where can you buy these? It would be great to have a little boost when I need to pump and put milk away for date nights and such...

    It didn't work for me. I took it for about 14 days.

    You can get them at GNC or anywhere they sell vitamins really. You have to take a LOT though, way more than it says on the bottle. It is like 3 pills three times a day. When your sweat and urine start to smell sweet like syrup you know you have found the right dosage.

    Thanks for the tip! I'll have to see if they work for me
