I recently had to stop nursing for a week due to medication and was told to pump & dump during that time. My body doesn't respond well to the pump, and by the end of the week, I was down to 10 oz per day. Needless to say, I had some serious concerns about keeping my supply up. When we started nursing again, I could tell that I wasn't making enough, and I went to the store to pick up some Lactate Support on the recommendation of a friend. I took my first capsule at about 4pm, and by bedtime I was engorged! I took 5 capsules the first day to jump-start my body, and have then switched to 3 capsules. My breasts are pretty much full at all times, and my daughter has even choked on the milk this morning (day 3), which hasn't happened in months. I plan on cutting back to 2 per day and seeing if that will be effective.
Yes, the pills are a wee bit pricey, but THEY ARE WORTH IT!! And increasing/maintaining an adequate milk supply to avoid having to switch to formula is priceless. I would buy them again in a heartbeat.
Bottom Line Yes, I would recommend this to a friend
