Hey! I am desperate to get my milk supply up and I have decided to take everything I possibly can to increase my supply. I have been taking fenugreek about 3 capsules 3x/day and 1 reglan 1x/day and am only pumping about 1.5 oz both breasts combined in a 15-20 min session.
I am only pumping because my LO is rejecting the breast and I have tried all that I can and she will not latch on. I hate having to supplement with formula but I'm simply not pumping enough.
I found on this website, http://lactinv.com/breastfeeding_qna...ur_milk_supply , several different things to try to increase my supply and I noticed one item mentioned on here, Super Algae, It only says that it is a good thing to increase milk because it contains a lot of nutrition and that doesn't make a whole lot of sense to me. So I was just wondering if anyone has heard of this, tried this, etc..
Also, I am interested in taking Goat's Rue as well, do you think that it would work best in the combination of More Milk Special Blend which is the same as More Milk Plus but includes Goat's Rue or should I take it seperately? I'm so new to all of this I just dont know if it would work best separate or is it all the same?
My plan of action is this...
More Milk Plus, Goats Rue, Alfalfa, Super Algae,reglan and pumping every 3-4 hours or 6-7 x/day (about all I can fit in a day but once I start working, 3 days will have to be cut down drastically) and one of the pumping sessions will be bw 1-5am so that I can take advantage of the Prolactin peak.
Will I be over-doing it?
I would like to hear some opinions before I order anything, thanks!
