Any thoughts about fenugreek...?
Cat006 posted:
recently someone told me if I am having trouble keeping up with my infants demand to try using fenugreek and that would increase my milk supply. Not sure how safe it is or if its even effective. What will it do to baby? Has anyone tried this, or have any opinions about this? THANKS!

I have no experience, but from what I've read in other posts, lactation consultants recommend it and many of the women in the breastfeeding community have used it. Given LCs and even pediatricians recommend it, I would say it's safe.

Our daughter's pediatrician recommended this to me because I was having the same problem. She used it with her daughter too. Unfortunately it doesn't work for everyone, which was my case, but she said when it does work, it works really well. So, it's worth a shot, and yes it's safe.

I was having trouble at night, she'd drain me and wouldn't go to sleep without some more. I used "milkmaid's tea" which has fenugreek, but of course they flavored it with fennel. I'm not a big black licorice fan. =( Once I was done the tea I started just straight fenugreek capsues. I ony did the tea for a week and the capusules for about 5 days. Since that I seem to have a better supply. The only thing that I found bad was the burps for about 3-4 hours after taking the capsule. I tried with and without food, it still tasted terrible either way.
