Hello ladies!

I have been taking Fenugreek capsules to help with my milk supply. It has been helping me a lot but I noticed that when I stop taking the capsules my milk supply goes back down. Do I need to keep taking them in order to keep up the amount?? I also noticed my 11 month old getting a couple bumps on her forehead but I'm not sure if that is from the capsules or just a little heat bumps (she is a sweater).

Thank you, Lori! I wasn't sure if it was safe to just keep taking them. I'm on my second bottle of 100 capsules. I only take 2 capsules around 7:30/8am and then another two around 11ish. Sometimes I will take 2 more a couple hours later if needed. I pump 3x a day at work so I try to take them before each pump session.

From what I know about Fenugreek, what you're experiencing is what generally happens, it only helps increase your supply while you continue to take them. So yes, you need to keep taking them to keep up the amount.
Not sure about the bumps. Without seeing them and knowing more, I'd assume they're not related to the Fenugreek.
