I bought a bottle of Blessed Thistle after reading the "making more milk" book. I took Funugreek, but it upset my stomach so bad, I coudln't take it.
I read up on Blessed Thistle in the Medications and Mother's Milk book, and it's rated an L3. It says it is "vitually nontoxic" WHAT THE HECK DOES THAT MEAN?? Everything I read, says to "avoid use during breast feeding" Then after wards it says because there hasn't been enough studies done.
AHH! Would people make up their minds? I'm trying to make an educated decision on taking these things to increase my supply, and then I read things like "vitually nontoxic and avoid during breast feeding" and it freaks me out.
So, has anyone out there used Blessed Thistle? Did you have any side effects? I also ready that people take Fenugreek/Blessed Thistle together. Which I may be able to do since Blessed Thistle is used as an anti diarheal.
I don't know, I'm just trying to increase my supply, only a little bit. I'm getting about 75% of what I should be to satisfy my DD.
Any help would be greatly appreciated!
