Re: Increasing milk without Fenugreek...what can I take?

Ive given the oatmeal a whirl, and I really notice a difference! Both yesterday and today Ive had that engorged feeling...something I havnt had since my milk came in at 6 days PP. YAY!

As for the beer, I HATE beer. BLUCK! But I might choke one down if it will help. Would non-alcoholic beer work? How much of the alcohol in beer would actually go into the breastmilk?

It depends on how soon after you drink the beer and then nurse. I have actually been told that if you drink the beer while you are nursing or right before, less gets into your milk. But there are conflicting opinions on this. Most say that if you don't nurse for3-4 hrs after drinking 1 then very little will be left in your BM. I think that the non alcoholic stuff still has the hops which give it the beer taste and is what is supposed to help w/ milk production. I guess if you wanted to go that route just check the non alcholic stuff to see if it has hops. But if you don't like the taste of beer I wouldn't do it. I don't like it either, yucky. Glad the oats are working!!!
