Re: Safe herbal remedies to take to boost supply?

Nurse, nurse, nurse!!!! The first rule is always feed the baby, but nurse, and nurse often. The more you empty your breasts, the more triggers they'll get to make milk. I don't think supplementing in the first few days is a problem, while you build supply. Have you thought about an SNS?

I took fenugreek to boost supply after a bout of the stomach flu. Worked fabulously for me!

Re: Safe herbal remedies to take to boost supply?

I've been feelign low these past few days, I think because DS isn't nursing as often. I'm making sure I eat more, drink more (tough one, I'm not thirsty other than while he's nursing) & I made some oatmeal cookies & am drinking Yogi's Nursing mother tea. I've only had it twice though, I haven't been drinking it religiously, but if I did there may be greater improvement, I just don't think I need that much. Good luck mama!!!

I was on Fenugreek, and now I am on More Milk Plus (Fenugreek, Blessed Thistle, Nettle Leaf, and Fennel Seed) and Domperidone.
