    Default Peppermint?

    I hear peppermint can reduce supply. Anyone ever tried altoids or peppermint tea with any luck? Block feeding aren't working well for us.

    I found this. I don't have a problem w/ OS, so I've never tried it. But now I know to stay away from altoids

    I found that page at Kelly Mom helpful. I am gonna try the sage, we will see if it works?
    I thought it was funny, that it recommends Sudafed. I have to take a 12 hour time release pill each day for sinus problems (doc okayed). I can't imagine how big my supply would be if I didn't take it!! Yeesh...

    How long have you been doing blocks? How long are they? How old is baby? What other things have you tried?
