I know she is gaining well, but if I had a little more milk, I feel like she wouldn't pull, fuss, and pop on and off my nips over and over.

Anyway, how much fenugreek should I start with?

ETA: she is 7 weeks old, but has been doing this for several weeks so I don't think it's a growth spurt trying to summon more milk.

Could she be sensitive to something in your diet? Does she arch at all? Ds2 pulled & fussed & pulled & fussed... When he'd finally get the letdown he was either happy or clearly upset & wild stop... It's a double edged sword because the milk soothes tummies & they want that- but sometimes it can hurt too!
He slept ok in the beginning but steadily got worse. Hope that's not the case for you!
Eta: 6 pills a day worked for me...
