    Default fenugreek and number two's

    Anyone take fenugreek and notice a change in bub's nappies?

    Just the last two days she has been going more than once a day, which is the norm. Now it's up to three times. Is fenugreek known to cause this? I started it on Saturday. It has boosted my supply but surely not enough to cause all this poo!

    I'm not sure but maybe if your supply has boosted, your little one is drinking more and therefore having more poos?

    I have been taking fenugreek for a few days and it took until today but yes. Bub is pooing more and it is sloppy. He is bf but I top up and night feed formula since a few days before I started the fenugreek.

    I had supply issues after DS was born... Hard to recall now, though I know I was on motillium and fenugreek.. Worked wonders, though made DS smell AWFUL when he passed wind. LC said to try motillium only. I lost my supply after that. I'm just wondering if there is a connection between smelly baby and extra bowel movements? I'm sure I can remember him pooing more around that time.. Sorry, not much help
