 I got Fenugreek at a health food store / natural pharmacy and I also got Blessed Thistle and took them together.  I took 3-4 capsules of each, 3 times a day.

Just know that you need to really be pumping/nursing a lot for it to work and not everybody sees results.

YOu can get fenugreek pills at GNC or the Vitamin Shoppe.

BUT the best way to raise supply to pump extra is not the pills, becuase those pill sonly work if supply is actually low.

If you want to pump to store, nurse one breast whilepumping the other for the first morning feeding everyday.  Aslo pump between feedings and after feedings.  Store in 2-4 oz sections, you can comebine same temp milk from many pumping sessions.  Make sure to massage and compress the breast while pumping, it will get the most out.
