Hi - I recall a comment you made awhile back about fenugreek - something like "if you don't smell like syrup you're not taking enough." That was you, right? I'm going to try it again in my final push to get my supply back up. The first time around, I didn't smell like syrup so I'm going to try taking 12 per day this time. Do you know anything about the dosing when you take more than the recommended 9 per day? Like, do you still take 3 per dose and increase the frequency, or should you take more tablets per time but keep it at 3 times a day, or does it really matter? I can't find much about it online and you seem really knowledgable.

Thanks!

Happy mom to two sweet, silly boys: Cohen age 4, AJ age 2.

  • I hope you don't mind me butting in.  My LC told me my sweat and urine should smell like syrup.  They told me to start with 3 caps 3 times a day and if it didn't work I could increase to 4 caps 3 times a day.  Good luck!

    This was exactly what I was told as well, along with drinking lots of fluids and eating as much oatmeal as possible.  If you are a beer drinker that will help too......the darker the beer the better the increase.

  • What mrs jr said! I also ate oatmeal 2x/day. When I got sick of eating oatmeal, I made lactation cookies. I just googled it.
