I pump exclusively. My little one refuses to nurse, no matter what. His pediatrician suggested I take fenugreek. I asked if anyone had used it in some forums and several women complained with nausea and diarrhea as a side effect, though some said it worked wonders for them. Some also suggested I try Mother's Milk Tea.
How many people have had side effects from taking either? And would one be better to take than the other?

try eating lots of oatmeal. you can also try a non-alcoholic dark beer. fenugreek should be taken with blessed thistle to help increase effectiveness. the more milk plus capsules by motherlove are supposed to work great! there is a list of galactogogues on kellymom.com.

Taking the pills is better because then you know the exact dose, you can't do that with the tea. Lots of good info on dosing and side effects etc. at http://www.kellymom.com/herbal/milksupply/fenugreek.html
