Hi mommies!!! i would like to know how to increase my breastmilk as recently the supply drops badly. I am a working mom and currently express my milk. I have taken fenugreek seeds capsules but how long does it takes for the milk supply to increase? thanks

On top of Chet's advice, pump more often, try to actually breastfeed when with the baby, and drink lots of water.

Fenugreek and blessed thistle together work better. You're taking enough when your sweat starts to smell like maple syrup. A drug called domperidone will also increase your milk supply, but I live in Canada and I'm not sure about the availability of it in the US.
