Once your baby is a couple of months old, do the herbs work to increase supply or do they only work during the early stages? In other words, if he goes through a growth spurt and needs more milk, in addition to more stimulation/nursing obviously, could the herbs work again for me?
Are there any herbs I'm missing for future use? I'm comfortable taking Fenugreek b/c it's just a food, basically... a spice. Blessed Thistle I've heard good things about but don't know about it's safety or efficacy. Any others?
