Hi ladies, back again! So the pills are not making a difference in my supply, I'm still only pumping drops and my daughter hasn't latched onto me in days. I'm worried my supply is going to be gone, so I started looking into the supplemental nursing systems. Anyone used it before (medela)? Tips and tricks on it? Someone has offered to give me their unused starter one to see if it will work before I invest in the long-term one. This is my last effort at trying to give breastfeeding one more go before giving up completely

I haven't. She has a perfect latch, she just no longer wants to breastfeed because of the lack of milk. :/

What pills are you talking about?
More Milk Plus worked well for me. I am not pumping 4.5 oz compared to just 1 after 3 days. You put one ml under your tongue for as long as you can stand it...
More Milk Plus | Motherlove Herbal Company

There are other products on that page. It's different then fenugreek pills because it's extracted differently. Please give it a try before you give up!!

I'm taking fenugreek for quite some time now and am now pairing it with blessed thistle. But I will try the more milk plus too and see if that helps!
