Re: Starting Fenugreek...Questions
The fenugreek tablets will be fine to take. You'll know you're taking enough when your urine and sweat smell like maple syrup (really!). If fenugreek works for you, you typically do not need to take it forever, provided that the baby is doing a good job of nursing. A nursing baby maintains supply better than anything else!
Fussiness at the breast does not mean low supply as long as the baby is producing adequate wet and poopy diapers and is gaining weight appropriately. If you really are having supply issues, use the pump. IMO, nursing and then pumping with a good pump (NOT a manual or cheap single electric) is better for stimulating increased supply than any supplement on the market.
ETA: From the last time you posted about this issue, I thought you were is a good, more confident place when it came to nursing and supply. What changed, mama?
