My son is 6 months old, and I've been back to work for about a month and a half. When I first came back to work, I could pump 8-9 ounces a day (I don't respond well to the pump at all), but now am only pumping 2-3 ounces, if I'm lucky. He seems to be nursing well in the evenings and overnights, though, so at least that's not decreasing. I've been taking the fenugreek for a week now, and haven't seen any improvement yet. For those of you who have taken it, how long did it take for you to see any difference?
My lactation consultant recommended Reglan if the fenugreek didn't work, but to not take it any longer than three weeks because of the potential for depression as a side effect.
I was only able to nurse my daughter for four months, so I feel pretty successful making it this far with my son. But I don't want to give it up. I'd appreciate any insight and advice you can offer.
