Re: How long do I keep taking the herbs?
some mothers continue to take herbal supplements the entire time they are breastfeeding...others find that they are able to maintain their increased supply after stopping. personally, i take a couple weeks off between taking fenugreek...though i haven't read anywhere that you have to give your body a "break" from fenugreek.
if you feel like your milk supply has decreased again, i'd suggest taking fenugreek again...i can't say much about alfalfa since i never took that.
