    also I bought some fenugreek - it has guaranteed potency 350mg it says to take two capsuls twice a day...does anyone have experience I weigh about 135 lbs.
    Ask your LC to be sure, but I believe the dosage on the bottle is often not sufficient for increasing milk supply. I was told to take between 2 and 4 capsules, 3x per day. Also, I know some mothers take fenugreek and blessed thistle together and get better results.

    Okay--this has me a bit concerned. I have PCOS and am planning on BF when I deliver in 5 weeks. What affect can this disorder have on my supply and ability to EBF?

    Krista -- I don't know the answer to your question, but I would encourage you to post this question to the board that deals with medical concerns (mom's). I don't want it to get buried here at the bottom of a long thread, KWIM?
