any supplements safe to take while preg?

I think I may be expecting. My milk seems to be low LO wants to nurse but only for a few seconds and then runs off and is super whiney. Is there anything safe to take to increase my suppy while pregnant?

Fenugreek is not recommended but you can try alfalfa. Motherlove makes a good product for pregnancy called More Milk Two that has raspberry leaf, nettle, and alfalfa.

Ask about mothers milk tea, or thistle I hear are good but not sure if safe while preg. I was preg & mine did this too so I lost the battle... so tired & she (15 month) was whiney & clingy & irritable & me too sort of cuz lack of energy. I had more soreness when she nursed more times a day too.....

More Milk Two, made by Motherlove. I'm almost 25 weeks pregnant (I think, they keep changing my due date ), and still nurse DS3 on demand. My supply was fine until about 21 weeks, and then it decreased a bit. I got some More Milk Two, and my supply is back up to pre-pregnancy amounts .

You can also try eating more nutritious foods, especially oats, free-range eggs, and whole milk dairy.
