I bet there are some other galactagogues out there I don't know about. Which ones have you heard of, and which ones have you tried? What has worked for you?
Beer (Guinness): I tried this but I felt like it dehydrated me and reduced my supply
Fenugreek: I think this worked for me, but only at the very beginning when my milk was still coming in (I don't think it helped my supply once I plateaued)
Mothers Milk Tea: I felt like this dehydrated me most of the time I drank it and I didn't see an increase
Oatmeal: no noticeable change in supply
I have not tried any of the prescription things, like Reglan or Domperidone. Plain old water seems to help since it keeps me hydrated!
What other galactagogues are there, and what has worked (or not worked) for you?
