  • Fenugreek is one of the things recommended that you take to increase supply. It will not hurt the baby. You can take 3 pills 3 times a day....you might start smelling like maple syrup....In my opinion the mothers milk tea didn't work for me. The pills did and also something that is only available online called Mother's lactoflow worked great for me. Good luck. You can also eat a bowl of oatmeal every morning. That helped me too. Some people might tell you beer works. It actually doesn't, it just helps the relaxation factor.

  • It works and it's safe.. you have to take a bunch of them though!
    I found that worked More MIlk Plus worked better for me... but the fenugreek worked too, I just didn't like how many I had to take and didn't like to stink like syrup
