A quick caution on cabbage

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 

Cabbage can work really well for engorgement but can also reduce supply when used regularly.  Just keep it in mind and keep an eye on supply, especially since these early weeks are when baby and our boobs are communicating non stop about how much to make.

check out the link for more specific info on use.

Good advice! I should note that both my MW and LC said the same, but in my case, still recommended it, bc milk was running down my chest and engorgement/oversupply a major problem. But in general, they felt it should be used with a lot of caution, if not as a last resort.
