    Re: Fenugreek Side Effects

    Is it just b/c Fenugreek and Blessed Thistle build up in your system as to why you can stop taking it for awhile and then resume? That's why my dr told me but was wondering if any of you had heard...

    Re: Fenugreek Side Effects

    I've noticed more gas in myself (haven't really noticed in my daughter) and am thinking it's probably the Fenugreek.

    Re: What/When to feed

    Yeah and I don't have to pump either when she nurses...I love nothing more than that special time between her and I, melts my heart when she looks up at me when she's nursing! Thanks for the link too.

    Blessed Thistle

    Who has tried it and had positive results? Negative side effects? No change at all?

    Hope, thanks for the info! I will try the nipple shield...I have got to do something, she's looks at me and starts to cry when I say no, poor baby...it's like she doesn't even know what she's doing!...
  17. Re: OUCH! Can't take it anymore - what can I do???

    Good idea...I have been saying 'ow' loudly, mainly b/c it really hurts! I have little bite marks on my nipples. I'll do a search too. Maybe there's a nipple shield-type thing?

    Fluoride Ques

    Do I need to worry about my 5 month old dd getting enough fluoride? She is not on solids yet (exclusively bf) and I never drink tap water, only bottled spring water. Thanks for any advice!
