I'm sure this question is asked pretty frequently; does anyone have any suggestions for boosting my milk supply? I have an 8 week old, and it seems like I barely have enough milk for her. I can't pump any extra to store, and though during the day we are ok, every afternoon and evening she gets extremely frustrated and fussy at my breast, as though she is not getting enough.
I started my period last week, which I know is rare when exclusively breastfeeding, and that seemed to diminish my supply further. Has anyone heard anything, or better yet, tried anything, that boosts supply? I have heard a lot about fenugreek, I think it's called....has anyone tried that? But I also read that it makes you and your baby smell like maple syrup (SO bizarre!!) which is unfortunately one of my husbands least favorite scents.
I am so frustrated about this whole situation; like I said, the days are wonderful, but then when she is crying at my breast in the evening, I feel like the worlds worst mother, it's terrible. Any help would be greatly appreciated!
