I have had a very difficult time producing enough milk for my son. I know this, because even after he eats, he is still hungry. He sucks his fingers, and "roots" around on my chest looking for more milk. If he doesn't get it in a few minutes, he gets very upset and screams and screams. I have trie pumping like every 15 - 20 minutes inbetween feedings to try to get my body to produce more milk, but it just won't do it. I also don't think he is getting enough, because I don't feel like he has enough wet diapers during the day. If he has 5 in a single 24 hour period, we are doing really good, but 5 is a LOT for one day with him, so I really don't think he is getting enough milk.
I have heard that fenugreek is supposed to help up the milk supply. I just have a few questions.
Does it REALLY work?
Are there side effects?
How truly safe is it?
