How much Alfalfa for more milk?

Thanks.

I really don't know. There are capsules out there and I think it tells you how many to take(mg). Will you be taking capsules?

Yes. But the dosage on the bottle is for regular use, not for nursing, like the Fenugreek.

Sunshine, can you tell us more about what you're trying to do? How old is your baby? Is baby nursing or are you pumping or is it a combination? Why are you concerned about your milk supply?

With all my kids, my milk dries up on one side within a few months and so I nurse mostly on one side. No pumping, since almost nothing comes out. I need to stimulate to get s/t from that side, and to make sure the good side continues fine. With some of my others I used only Fenugreek, and BT, but was just told that Alfalfa has helped others even more than the Fenugrrek.  But the LC who told me didn't know the dose. I didn't find that the Fenugreek is helping this time.

 

Also, she has Tongue Tie, and it partly reattached, and might need to be reclipped, we'll know Tues., so I need to stimulate to make up for whatever strength she's lacking. 

 

She's 6 weeks, and my sweat smells from maple syrup...

 

Thanks again. I have the Solgar Alfalfa now.
