I have stopped taking it 3 times before and my milk supply dropped so low my son was constantly hungry and screaming and I wasn't having let downs anymore.
This time I am getting off slower and I am down to every two days, tried to do every 3 days but I already feel it getting really low. I am worried about a drop because my son mainly eats breastmilk at 14 months and very little solids.
I was hoping to nurse on until he weans himself, so possibly through the next pregnancy and then tandem feeding if he decides to nurse longer. I don't want to be on Fenugreek for that long! Afterall it is phytoestrogens.
I do believe my supply is fine, I had plenty during pregnancy and my milk cam in early even after a c-section (before that I pumped off bottles of colostrum daily), I was like a cow. But my son did have a bad latch due to a nipple shield the first two months, and I think this is what caused the first drop in supply.
But we have been all nipple since he was 2 months old and my supply bettered.
Just haven't been able to get off completely.
Any advice is appreciated, how do I get off of Fenugreek?
