Bumping for you as I'm interested in this as well as my b/milk supply borders on the crap side at times.

I drank this stuff which has a vile taste but did increase my milk imo. (Ignore the guinea pigs on the link)
I grew it for my goat and it increased her yield from 1/2 a pint daily to roughly 1 1/2 pints daily so I reckoned that it would work for me too.
It is one of the lesser known herbs and I would advise asking the advice of a fully trained medical herbalist.
The milkmaid tea seems really expensive for what it contains.
