I used fenugreek in capsule form (holland and barrett) You increase the dose by 1 every day till your sweat and milk smells of it. like maple syrup.

For me it was after having 3 tabs 3x a day

cheers. i know i know about the porridge. i'll get drummed out of scotland at this rate. don't like whisky either. shock

anyway, move along cheeky fox, i'm in the market for Actual Help here, not smart-arsery. grin

ah. x-post. did the fenugreek work? i tried it with dd and smelled uncomfortably of old curry.

fenugreek worked for me- i did take stupid ammounts though and smelt like a curry factory but boobs were bursting the next daygrin i tend to have a four day fenugreek blast every month just to boost it all up a bit- dh avoids me for that week wink

yeah i thought so... maple syrup my arse.

might pop along to the herbalists just now.

Fenugreek capsules worked for me too. I really liked the smell...blush

Aitch I'm just shock that you don't like porridge! Pah! Call yourself a Scotswoman?


Glad to see you are out of the hospital BTW!

One more cheer for fenugrek here. Gave up BF and went back to it a week later with it. Fab.

Here's a link from Kellymom about galactogues, unless you've already seen it. Could you eat flapjacks instead of porridge? Congratulations btw smile

God I wished I smelled like maple syrup on fengureek. I smelled like a Chiken Tikka Balti. DH called me "curry pits". Which was nice. Does work though.

Flapjacks, fenugreek and fennel tea.
Good luck!

Congrats on the new babbie!!

I used this and found it really really helped - stopped after a month or so because all seemed well, then found it later in the cupboard and thought I may as well use it up...promptly got engorged and a blocked duct within 2 days! (sorry i know that's not a good ad, but i just mean it worked well!).

All the oats in the world didn't work

Yes, i did smell like curry!

And they're lovely Scottish ladies at that company too!

i am using fenugreek and blessed thistle and it seems to have given a boost. not sure though if i should keep taking it indefinitely?? (has been about a week now)

Aitch Mon 15-Sep-08 12:15:24

got that mothers milk stuff and am also taking fenugreek. i'm MAD for the galactologues! grin

i can confirm that I smell of curry and dd2 smells of maple syrup. hmm
