    3 caps 2 times a day a couple of times a month (when I am really bad about pumping and I kill my supply).

    You can buy Fenugreek at GNC-

    I would call your OB and ask what they recommend on the dosage, I wasn't sure on it so I did check with my Dr. The basic guideline is to take enough so that you smell like maple syrup.

    I don't have a low supply, I have just enough, however, I can never pump more than 2 oz because my LO eats everything I make. I would like to increase my supply enough to pump a bottle to leave with mom so my hubby and I can go out. Is there any negative side effect from occasionally taking it and then stopping? I am afraid if I take it for a little while and stop, my supply will dip below where it is now.

    Thanks for all the info...I just bought some more so I could up my dosage. I was only taking two in the morning and I was barely pumping any through a 12 hour shift at work...so hopefully this helps.
