Just my right b**b i cant here her swallow when she eats off that side it hurts and draws blood. I cant pump anything out and now my left b**b is way larger but my milk seems to be drying up on that side too. :( do i have to eat while taking fenugreek? I dont want ava to have formula



And no this is not "my b**bs dont feel full i think theres no milk" its i really feel like the way getting a hicki feels KWIM? It hurst so bad.

What she said, and I always had to eat something when I took those herbs. Also the mother's milk tea.



Didn't help me much, we just stopped @ 10 months. I didn't much like nursing anyway

Could you maybe be pregnant? I've read that sometimes milk supply changes due to pregnancy. Read the "TTC since Nov" thing at bottom of your post so figured I'd mention it. Other than that there are herbs & prescriptions you can take, talk to your doctor or a lactation consultant about what's going on.

They have it in pill form to I have heard a lot of ladies on here recommend it over the tea.

There is always a possiblity but weve only been trying for 6 days so i dont think it would ddry up that fast? Unless i was pregnant before i quit the pill.

My left b**b is dryed to but my right b**b still gets alot of milk it did the same thing with my girls as it is doing with my son and my son is 6 months old I talked to my doc and he said thats wired bit told me its nothing to worrie about because my son is 18 pounds and 5 ounces so he is not laking milk. I wish I could go to fromula because he bites and it hurts but my son does not like the bottle or formula so it sucks. But I would good to ur doc and see why that is happening
