  • no, that would be too much fenugreek since it's the active ingredient in the tea

  • You actually aren't taking enough fenugreek to be helpful. You usually need about 12 caps/day to see any benefit from it (3 caps, 4 times/day) I don't know how much fenugreek is in the tea... but adjust the dose based on that. The dose is around 7 grams (7000 mg)

  • i take both but I take a pill thats called Lactation Blend so it has more than just fenugreek in it and I take Mothers milk organic tea. it seems to be helping. good luck.

  • I did. Nothing happened. LITERALLY nothing. I guess it didn't work for me!

  • I'm not really sure about the fenugreek(though I'm fairly certain you aren't taking enough, ask in the BFing support group) but the tea alone helped me a lot. It actually helped too much and I had to stop drinking it at one point. Ii just had too much milk and was leaking everywhere. I was drinking maybe 4 cups a day.
