After having breastfeeding issues with all my other babies I think I finally know why, hypoplasia. To try and counter this and make more glands I ordered Goats Rue tinture. Soooo gross I can not even explain. Anyone have experience with this? I can't picture having to swallow this stuff 3 times a day. It burns on the way down!

Please know I am not a big baby. I rather give birth 3 times a day then drink this stuff. Heck, I have been drinking raw placenta smoothies and though it is gross for me to think about, it is not horrible to drink.

I tried about everything else my last two babys, but not this stuff. If I have to go back on dom for this nursling I read this herb might make it work better.

Alot of times you can get the tincture in a vegan capsule and just swallow it. I have More Milk Special Blend by Motherlove Herbal Company. If it wasn't capsules I wouldn't be able to take it either, and for the record, it *is* b/c I'm a big baby about yucky tasting things.

I wish I would have gotten the pill form. As is I have to take 2ml of this stuff and that would be a hand full of pills if I tried to make them myself I am thinking. But at least they would not taste horrible. It helps to know I am not the only one though that thinks this is so so gross.

If you put the dose in a bit of hot water and let it sit for 5 minutes it is quite a bit easier to get down. I know that some people put it in a glass of orange juice. I am pregnant with #4 and about to start taking goat's rue for the 4th time in a couple of weeks-personally I'd rather drink an 8 oz glass of Goat's Rue than take one dose of fenugreek tincture! YUCK! But I guess we're all different.

The bottle I have says not to drink me then 1-2oz, 15 minutes before and after taking it so I was thinking that diluting it would not be a good thing and plus, I am not sure I want that taste in more of my mouth longer. LOL

And your right, I think fenugreek is not that bad. LOL

I posted this on another thread but I'll post it here, too: Goat's Rue is SO MUCH more tolerable mixed in 2oz of UNSWEETENED cranberry juice. It has a bad aftertaste, but it's not horrible.
