Re: smelling like maple syrup
Correct. You have to smell like syrup to see a noticeable difference. I worked w/ my IBCLC to get the correct dosage which turned out to be 7 pills 3/day. Now I'm able to maintain with 5 pills 3/day. You might notice a bit of gas/runny poops with your baby if you take this amount. It went away with my own LO after a few weeks.

The herb won't work alone- you really need to increase the amount of nursing and/or pumping. When my supply took a huge dip I was nursing as much as possible then I rented a hospital grade pump and pumped 20 minutes 6 x's day. Now that my supply is back up I'm not pumping anymore but just maintaining w/ the fenugreek.
