Can I take fenugreek and drink mama milk tea?

My supply is low when I pump at work... I am trying to up my milk...I was taking fenugreek 4 tabs 3x's a day. Now, I have quite the fenugreek and am drinking to mother's milk tea. I was an ounce shorter today. Can I do them both at the same time? I drank, no kidding, 8 glasses of water while at work! I so want to fix this...any ideas? Can I take more fenugreek? I have been taking fenugreek for several months now. PM me...

Yes, you can try them together. I know what that is like, I went through it with my second. Is there any way you can nurse more? Get a supplemental nursing system even? Is baby having any bottles when you're together? Some of us just don't respond as well to artificial stimulation. You can also try talking to your doctor and see if you can get domperidone.

Try Fenugreek and Blessed Thistle together 3 tabs of each 3x a day. It worked for me.

Re: Can I take fenugreek and drink mama milk tea?

My midewife had me on reglan for 7 months but told me to stop. Said it wasn't good to be on it long term? Wasn't good for the baby? So I stopped and now my pumping at work is 1 ounce less per pump. DD is almost sleeping all night and the midewife was out today so the nurse I talked to said to get up and pump at night....am I a horrible mother because I don't want to get up at night if I don't have to. It doesn't help that I am way to stressed at work.

I was told to only take 9 tabs of fenugreek a day. 3 of them 3 times a day. I was on reglan, 3 pills a day for almost 4 months straight. Pumping didn't do anything for me either. I know you can do the mother's milk and fenugreek together though. A better option for you might be the yogi nursing mom's tea because it has less fenugreek but it has chamomile in it which will help you relax while trying to pump.

Re: Can I take fenugreek and drink mama milk tea?

I take 6 (610 mg) tablets a day plus at least two cups of tea. I'm having trouble with my supply too - and I've got lots of stress too. I'm afraid of taking too much fenugreek, but I guess I'll try increasing the pills. I hate having to give my dd formula (while I'm at work) but I'm not pumping enough to satisfy her hunger when she is at daycare.

Yes you can take both! I took everything while trying to relactate with ds#2 (which I did successfully)! If you are having supply issues I would highly recommend domperidone! I will find where you can order it online and post! It has much better results than reglan without and side effects!

Midwife might give me domperidone, not sure...I think he is put out with my supply issues...maybe it is just me? Will try to pump some this weekend...I usually take the weekends off.
