Breastfeeding, HELP ME!!! I had a BabyBumpBelly 17 kids; American Fork, Utah 34384 posts

I am trying to up my supply, DD had jaundice when she was born and I supplemented and regretting it now. When I pump, I barely get 2 ml TOTAL.



I got some fenugreek and mothers milk tea. How often should I drink the tea and how much? How often and how much should I take of the fenugreek and for how long on both.



I am also on medication (prozac, prilosec, prenatal), will it have any effects?
I also was prescribed Reglan, but I am scared to take it because of the fluxotine (prozac)

Thanks!

I never used mothers milk tea but I used Fenugreek, Goat's Rue and Blessed Thistle. The Feunreek I took two capsules, three times a day. The Goat's Rue I took 2-3ml 3 times a day and the Blessed Thistle I took Two capsules, three times daily.

Reglan actually helped one of my friends supplies a lot. Her baby was in nicu so all she could do is pump.

I cant stand the tea but at one point I was taking 5 fenugreek pills 4 times a day. Reglan. Brewers yeast and blessed thistle. Nothing worked except more nursing.

Reglan can really boost supply.

I took fenugreek 3 pills 3x a day. Also, pumping after every feeding or just as much as possible will up your supply. Even if your barely getting any when pumping.

are you planning on just pumping? Is there a reason baby can't nurse directly? That will be what gets your supply up. Also how much you can pump isn't an indicator of how much you are making (but I understand if you are just pumping why you would need to get more out) Baby nursing directly from breast as much as possible. I have heard that eating oatmeal and drinking lots of water will help. Don't stress. Hot/warm water and massage while pumping. Google reglan and decide for yourself, my LO was prescribed it for reflux but I wasn't happy with side effects.
