Topic: Fenugreek

I started taking Fenugreek last week and have noticed an extreme change in my appetite. I could eat all day and everything in sight. Anyone else deal with this with Fenugreek? I haven't had any great increase in milk supply yet but my appetite has made up for that! Thanks in advance!

Our worlds collided and together we've been blessed with perfection!

Re: Fenugreek

DW takes fenugreek on a regular basis.  She hasn't linked it to an increase in appetite.  It hasn't helped her with supply either.  She keeps taking it on the hope it has contributed and we just don't realize it.

Re: Fenugreek

Fenugreek always makes me eat like mad, and gives me wonky blood sugar levels, as in they bottom out for no good reason if I stop eating for more then half an hour.  But I can only take it for 3 days or so before it upsets my stomach so badly (the fenugreek or the constant eating, IDK) that I have to stop.  Chocolate chip cookies with steel cut oats in them are so much tastier smile

Re: Fenugreek

Fenugreek makes your milk taste like maple syrup unless your not producing NATURALLY enough to feed baby its not a good ideal to take supplements

Re: Fenugreek

Huh, no I never noticed that! It did increase my supply by probably 25 - 50% but it upset my baby's tummy so I had to stop taking it. Lactation cookies helped just as much and didn't upset his tummy:

3 large bananas, smashed, 1 cup quick oats, 1/2 cup chocolate chips, 2 tbsp brewers yeast, 3 tbsp flax, a little salt cinnamon and vanilla.  Bake at 350 for 15 minutes.  Makes a 3 day supply.  Whenever I notice my supply dwindling I make a batch and it perks it back up.
