Fennel capsules

Hi everyone,

For those who take fennel capsules to increase their breast milk supply, how many pills do you take?

TIA!

  • Thanks @AmyG*
    but I really do mean Fennel!


  • most don't take fennel, of course some do.... it's not that popular for milk supply.

    "Fennel
    Fennel isn’t actually a galactagogue, but rather it assists with triggering the letdown reflex. It is particularly useful for working Moms who have found that they’ve stopped responding well to the pump. Fennel is best as a tincture, 2-4 ml up to three times a day, but can be taken in capsule form. Caution should be used with fennel because it can act as an appetite suppressant. Keep a careful eye on your caloric intake. Also, fennel contains phytoestrogens which if taken in excess can have a negative effect on your supply."
