Was just reading something on Dr Sears website that was talking about how galactogogues *can* be a placebo effect, and that when we take them, they *may* be working because we think they will work? I'm not buying a trip on that crazy train, but I am wondering - as my journey as a breastfeeding Mama, what happens if I were to wean myself from the galactogogues I currently take? At 20 months nursing, would I experience a decrease in production, even if my girl is nursing strong? I'd secretly love to not take fenugreek and lactate support 3 times a day, and pay the $80/month to do so.
Thoughts? Has anyone experienced this?
Neither my daughter or myself wish to slow nursing. I rather love it!
