Has anyone taken this to help boost their supply? I have been able to nurse in the past but never past 2 months...What else could I take to help my supply?

  • I did take it with my second. It helped out a ton. I began losing my milk supply when my second DD was about 5 months...it helped get me back on track.

  • I have taken it a few times whenever I feel like I need a boost. The dosage that worked for me was 3pills 3x per day you should smell like maple syrup.Also the BF group is great. G/L

  • It helps some moms, while for others it's not strong enough. The only way to know for sure if it will help you is to try it out. For me it wasn't strong enough, so my lactation consultant told me to try Breastea from http://www.breastea.com. It has helped a lot. Make sure to nurse/pump at least every 2 to 3 hours.
