I'm new and this is my first post, so I'm going to fumble through my explanation a little.
I have a five and a half month old son.
Since the beginning, I've pumped with a Pump in Style. Also since the beginning, my left breast produces a significantly lower amount of milk than my right. For example, my son will nurse at 4 p.m. and by 8 p.m. when I pump, I only get an ounce (or even less than an ounce!) and it seems like it's mostly hindmilk and very little foremilk. My right side produces nicely in the same time frame: 2 to 3 ounces, at least.
About a month ago, I did a round of Reglan which helped while I was on it, but my levels just returned to what they were before. I'm pumping to try to get my left side to produce more, but haven't had the results my son and I need. He's staying on extra long on that side to try to demand more, but all it's doing is hurting me.
What are the side effects of Fenugreek (misspelled?) and what is it exactly? Does it really work and is it as effective as Reglan?
Well, thanks in advance for any help.
