How Much Fenugreek

Do you use? I am taking 3 pills 3 times per day, but barely smell like syrup. My supply has increased, but I wouldn't mind a better amount. How much can I take and do you take? I want to make it to at least a year. We are at 11 mos now with no real solids. Breastmilk is his sole nutrition.

Re: How Much Fenugreek

When I took it, 2 pills 3 times a day was enough for me to 1.) smell like syrup a little bit and 2.) increase my pump output by about 1.5 oz a pumping session. You can take up to 12 a day.

Have you tried also taking Mother's Milk Tea? You have to drink about 5 cups of the tea a day to see a difference.

I like KellyMom's informational page on fenugreek.

I have not done tea yet. I will have to pick some up on Monday. I might bump up to 12 pills. I am at 9 right now.

I'm up to 10/day & finally able to cut back some supplementing! My LC has been so very supportive & helpful through all my troubles! I'm still not smelling the syrup but as long as I'm noticing the supply- she said not to worry so much With dd1, I noticed the smell with 2, 3x/day & I was horrible with taking it regularly- not sure what's up this time!

Baby grunts whenever passing bm when I was taking fenugreek. I have a good supply, but needed more for storage as I do need to be away for work. I prefer the tea and so does dd, I think.

I just got 6 boxes with 16 bags in each box for a little over $10 on amazon. It was $5 something at GNC for one box...
