So I started taking a supplement today with a lot of fenugreek in it. It's to help boost my breastmilk supply. A couple people mentioned that my pee might smell like maple syrup.



Is it REALLY? If you took fenugreek or something containing it, did yours?

My pee didn't smell like syrup, but my sweat did... which was worse. It was like I was using aunt jemima for deodorant.

Definitely! LOL



It wouldn't bother me if it did, I was just curious as to whether or not it was true.



I'd heard the sweat thing also.

That would be awesome!



My supply is almost nothing right now. It's finally an an upward trend after two days of pumping religiously every 2 hours all through the day and night, with about three missed pumpings because of home health visits and a car trip.



I'm doing my best to give it a jumpstart!
