I'm getting ready to use fenugreek and blessed thistle to boost my milk supply which has dropped significantly after a plugged duct in one of my breasts. Anyone ever used this stuff before? Do you have to take both of them to be effective or is it one or the other? And what the heck is up with smelling like syrup?!Answer Question
I haven't used fenugreek, you can go to http://www.llli.org/ to find a consultant in your who can probably just give you advice over the phone.
Next time(if) you get a blocked duct: What worked for me was having my DH knead/massage my breast while the baby nursed. I had my DH do it because if I did my muscles would tense, plus I was in pain and it was soothing.
