Hey,


Many of us do, BUT I would totally recommend doing your own research, as everyone's comfort level is different. A good site for everything bf related is


www.kellymom.com


Hope that helps!

Thanks Sunday, just thought I would check and see if others were using it as some of the information says that it can decrease milk supply and others say it can increase it!

I agree with Sunday - lots of us do/did but you need to make your own peace with it. I do know that it has been recommended to increase milk supply in nursing mothers (kelleymom) but there is for sure conflicting information out there.

I started using it to conceive DS#2 when #1 was about 14 months old and to get cycles back and regular when DS#2 was about 6 months old and never noticed any ill effects.

Good luck with your decision.
