No-Bake Lactation Bolz Recipe

Has anyone of you tried this? My sister advised me to try this as breastmlik booster, kasi ito raw ginamit niya sa US (pero sa india raw nag originate ito and karatig na countries, parang one of their spices ata?!?! ). I researched about it at marami namang testi about fenugreek. Eto rin isang article from babycenter:
http://www.babycenter.com/404_can-the-herb-fenugreek-increase-a-moms-milk-supply_8880.busy

Naghanap ako ng Indian grocery within NCR, meron raw sila available at may bumibili rin nung powder type para nga sa bf. I just don't know how to prepare them.   Meron sa sulit.com ako nakitang Swanson na brand, kaso sa back label may warning na "pregnant or nursing moms should not take the product" .  But then again, good raw talaga ito for bf.

Hindi pa tuloy ako makadecide if oorder ako nung Swanson brand.

Yes, i tried it too & it's effective. But you need to take 9-12 pills a day. You can buy either from GNC or Healthy Options. Healthy Options fenugreek is a lot cheaper than GNC's. If you think you will become their regular customer, ask about their green card. You can earn points plus you can get a P50 or P100 voucher depending on your purchased amount each time you buy, which you can use on your next purchase.

& one thing about fenugreek, it makes your sweat smell like maple syrup, especially in your armpit :)

Hello sis, thank u sa feedback. 12pills in a day? As in ganun karami?  Parang magstos ata, if 100caps ang isang bottle, ubos agad yun in less than 10days lang.

Yung mismong fenugreek seeds na muna yung binili ko. I got one from an Indian store. Ginagawa kong tea, I take one cup ever after meal. medyo bitter ang taste -pero tolerable naman.  :)

sis clover -- highly recommended ko yung Brownies. hindi ka magsisisi. visit my blog www.adventuresonplanetmom.blogspot.com 
I recently wrote something about the brownies and if you like mint on your brownies, she also has peppermint brownies available.

aside from the brownies masarap din yung choco chip muffin bites or yung banana oat muffin bites. or better yet you can request for an assorted cupcake bites para masample mo lahat.

Hi mommies!

I heard about the fenugreek supplement so I tried it to boost my milk supply. I bought mine from Healthy Options. 1 bottle with 100 capsules costs Php 695.00 and you must take 3 capsules a day according to the instructions.

I took 3 capsules as instructed. However, my baby had rashes all over her face the next day. Since I didn't take anything else previously, I suspected that the rashes were caused by the fenugreek capsules.  I stopped taking it for now because I wanted to let baby's rashes heal first.

Right now, the rashes are healing na. By the way, we didn't put anything, we just let it heal on its own. I'm not so sure if I'm going to take the capsules pa. Kaso sayang naman.

Has anyone experienced this din ba?

Hope somebody can enlighten me. Thanks!

^pwedeng allergic si baby sa fenugreek. better stop taking it na lang. you can opt to try other galactagogues like malunggay, oatmeal, etc.

Hi purple_girl!

I thought so too! Maybe I'll start taking Malunggay capsules again. I took natalac for 2 weeks, maybe I'll try moringana this time.

Thanks!

Kahiyang ko yung Fenugreek pang boost ng breast milk. Buti na lang nabasa ko tong thread na to sa pinaka huling baby ko. Sa first baby ko kasi, medyo mahina ang milk production ko.
