I have a low milk supply and the Fenugreek by Gaia Herbs. http://www.gaiaherbs.com/product.php?id=302
Didnt work, i was told my urine would smell like maple syrup and it did but i didnt see much of more milk. I also have mothers milk and i drink that and it didnt do nothing. The liquid form i see on the internet is like a tincture type.
And i would like to know if beer makes your milk supply low or not. I keep hearing yes and no. im confused!

THE BREASTFEEDING ANSWER BOOK, 2003 states: “Many mothers try to boost their milk supply by drinking herbal teas, but the dose cannot be as easily controlled as capsules or tinctures, so the results will be inconsistent. Fenugreek (three capsules three times per day can be taken alone or with blessed thistle (three capsules three times per day). Experience indicates that it takes 24-72 hours to see an increase in milk supply once the herbs are started in the correct doses. Fenugreek is listed in the US as a Generally Recognized as Safe herbal.”
