That said, there's no harm in giving them a try with your doctor's approval. These aromatic seeds are often touted as potent galactagogues. But there's no widespread evidence to suggest that fenugreek works to increase breast milk supply, so some pediatricians don't recommend fenugreek. Another thing to keep in mind? Some moms who use fenugreek report that it seems to make their babies gassier.

Recently, I got a call from my friend who blessed with a baby girl. She was having a tough time while nursing. Her two months old daughter feels hungry even after nursing for minutes. She was worried that her breastmilk supply was not sufficient to satisfy the hunger of her baby.
You may not realize it, but many things can interfere with how your body makes breast milk and your breast milk supply, including health issues, diet, lifestyle choices, and medications. Your health and the condition of your body and mind can affect the production of breast milk. When you're physically well, getting rest, and have a healthy support system, your body can focus its energy on making milk. But, if your body is out of balance because you have an untreated medical condition, you're exhausted, or under a lot of stress, you can see a decrease in your supply.
