    Question What works best? Share all ideas!

    Thanks!

    Fenugreek and blessed thistle got me through a dip at around four-five months.

    I took 3 caps fenugreek three times a day and blessed thistle tincture diluted in water three times a day. The fenugreek helps supply, but the blessed thistle helps with letdown, so I think that's why the combo works for so many women.

    I also started eating oatmeal pretty much every day and keeping an eye on my water intake.

    I'm happy to say that my supply totally recovered and I'm not using the herbs at the moment, but it feels like "insurance" to have them handy.

    Good luck!

    1st thing to try is nursing more often.
    Do you think your supply is low?

    I was having problems with my milk supply also. I heard about a tea called "Mothers Milk Tea" (you can get it at GNC, offline, or some supermarkets I get mine at Beldens) It acually works for me i started to pump alot more milk and i've only been drinking it for about 2 weeks now! It tastes great with honey
