Fenugreek??
 
I got hubby to pick some up and of course it says not to use if nursing. My pharmacist hubby is super cautious and is hesitant about me taking it. Tell me it's okay! lol

It's perfectly fine, almost everything says if pregnant or nursing consult a doctor or do not take if pregnant or nursing.

3 tablets 3 times a day! And it is absolutely safe. Be prepared to smell like maple syrup. If you get diarrhea or if baby gets diarrhea decrease the amount (2 tablets 3 times a day for example). But I haven't heard of anyone getting diarrhea from it unless they took way more than they should have, lol.

Lurking to see pics of the cute little babies. :)

If it makes you feel any better, women in Souteast Asia eat a ton of this stuff pregnant or not. Because I love the food from that area, I have eaten a ton (some seeds, but mostly leaves) with previous pregnancies and am still eating it now...It excites me to know that I can eat even more to up my milk supply. :)

Good luck!
