any fenugreek success stories?

My supply has gotten so bad that i can only do 4 of the 8 feedings my baby needs.
Just bought fenugreek and hoping someone has a success story to give me hope!

Re: any fenugreek success stories?

  • With fenugreek I went from pumping 2.5-3 oz every 3-4 hours to 3-4 oz in the same time period. I will say what helped more than that though was oatmeal and Gatorade. After 1/2 cup oatmeal and 1 Gatorade daily I'm pumping 4-6 oz at a time. And around 8-9 for MOTN pump. And no smelling like maple syrup :)
  • Fenugreek did not help me and I was taking 4 pills 3x/day for almost a month.  

    Although I have read that it works better when combined with Blessed Thistle and I didn't try it that way.  However, I did use Motherlove More Milk Plus, which has both ingredients and that did not work for me, either.

  • My PCP suggested one oatmeal stout a day right after I pump or nurse (as to limit the amount of alcohol in the breast milk). I don't know if it works but its a good reason to drink a beer  ;)
  • Fenugreek makes a difference for me within 24hrs.
