Okay, I'm down to the last resort. I have to try fenugreek.
Alonzo is still in the middle of a growth spurt (or hopefully coming out of it soon!!), and for the past three days we've had to supplement with formula because my body just can't keep up with him (even when I nurse sometimes every hour). So I went and got some fenugreek today. It's the only thing I haven't tried (everything else I've tried apparently isn't working). But I'm not sure how much to take. I got the 610 mg. pills. Kellymom says to take 2-4 pills, 3 times a day. So do I take 2, 3, or 4? Anybody have any experience and know what dosage is best?
When I took it, I did 4 pills in the morning, 4 in the afternoon, and 4 at night. That's the max dose you can take. I read that once your pee and body odor start to smell like maple syrup, you can start cutting back. Yummy.
