I have a 2 month old baby and since he started to sleep longer during the night my milk supply has reduced a lot. I've started to supplement formula but i'd like to feed him only breastmilk. I am thinking on using fenugreek to boost my milk supply but dont know how much to take and for how long.

Esmeralda,

I had difficulty producing enough for my daughter. Fenugreek seemed to help me the best. You may contact a local herb or organic baby store for help with dosage. There are also different types. LaLeche may be able to help too.

When my son was born, I tried to use Fenugreek. I took it 3 times a day (I was already starting to dry up by this point and was only producing less than an ounce every two hours). Now I had dried up so much that it did not do me any good but it might work for you better.
