  • i was taking the pill but it was drying up my supply and i have tried pumping but it seems not to help that much! so i wanna get as much milk as i can to breastfeed more than formula feed, since my DD has always struggled with the formulas getting her too fussy or constipated!

  • Try the health food store or a vitamin store. A store like walmart or shoprite might also carry it. If you have a particular store near you you can look on line to see if they carry it.

  • Depending on where you live, I found fenugreek at Fred Meyer's in their section with organic food. Target here doesn't carry it.. you'll be better off finding a health food store.

    Unfortunately, I had to stop taking it, it made my baby way to gassy.

  • a vitamin shop, or whole foods market..the tea does nothing unless you drink like 12 cups a day and that's coming from an LC....the fenugreek helped me some. 3 pills 3 times a day...you may start to smell like syrup.

  • GNC or a local health food store. The mothers milk tea didn't help me because I never ended up drinking the recommended amount per day. If you really like tea, it might work. The fennugreek pills work great and it is easy to take the recomended amount.
